Below is a quote from a Service User who will soon reside at this Service:-

"Hi! My name is Dave and soon I am moving from hospital into my own flat in Consett. I am excited about this but am going to need help with some things. I will need help with furnishing my flat and budgeting to look after it. I am a very active person who likes working at the allotment, doing voluntary work at a local food bank and I also do volunteer dog walking. I need staff to support me to help me to continue to do these things when I move. Do you think you could help?"

Do you have the confidence to be able to work within a positive behaviour support framework, to accept responsibility and to develop as a skilled practitioner.
