Making every day better 

As a specialist care service, Church Walk has an excellent track record of successfully helping those who have had failed placements previously. Our high staffing levels enable us to work as people’s own pace and build trust, which leads to longer term, person-centred outcomes.

We care for some of the most complex and acute individuals, who would often be in a hospital setting if not placed with us, enabling them to stay in the community and reducing hospital and secure facility admission. Many of the people we support have been deemed to have behaviours that are considered ‘too complex’ for mainstream nursing and care services.

All of our care and nursing colleagues complete our Exemplar Positive Behaviour Support (EPBS) training that’s been certificated by Bild ACT, and are supported by our central team of Behaviour Support Specialists. This means that, for many of our service users, we’re successful in achieving a significant reduction in behaviours of concern and use of observations within 12 weeks of stay.

About our care

Marian moved into Church Walk following a brain injury from a traffic accident in 2019. With the support of our specialist team, he is showing great progress in his recovery. When he first moved into Church Walk, Marian was unable to weight bear, his speech was limited and he displayed behaviours of concern. One year on, Marian has made incredible progress - he really comes alive in social situations, is showing more drive to do his own personal care, and is showing signs of being able to bare weight independently.
