Our Approaches

Learn more about our approaches 

Safeguarding

We are committed to the safeguarding of the children, young people and adults we support across the organisation and encourage openness and transparency in everything we do.

We apply the principles of Child Safe, NDIS and DHHS across all divisions and settings to ensure that, at all times, the wellbeing of each child, young person or adult is at the very centre of any safeguarding process.

 

Supported independent living 

We know that gaining independence and moving into their own home is very important to the young people we support on their transition to adulthood.

Our Supported Living provision works closely with the young people involved, families, education providers, housing providers and other stakeholders to offer a wide range of flexible, innovative and person-centred support options.

Living independently or with a small group is a fantastic way to put the skills gained through education into practice. For many of the people we support through our Further Education provision, Supported independent Living allows them to take another step towards adulthood by moving out the family home and taking control of their own lives.

 

Person Centred Approaches 

We use Person Centred Approaches to ensure that any individual we support is always fully involved in decisions affecting all aspects of their life. This start from day one when we ask for a one Page Profile 

Providing person centred support means always listening, learning and focusing on what is important to and for someone, now and in the future.

At an individual level this means continuous communication with the people we support and with those who know them best. At No Limits Community Services, practicing a Person Centred Approach includes giving the person opportunities to achieve their goals and outcomes, within the context of the service they are using. That each person we support is living their life, their way. We all have dreams and our staff will strive to make them come true

 

Positive Behaviour Support 

 

A Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) approach involves focusing on improving a person’s quality of life and understanding the reasons behind any behaviours of concern. As a result, behaviours of concern and use of restrictive practices are reduced. 

 

Voice of the people we support 

Involving the people we support in everything we do is extremely important to us at No Limits Community Services.

We know that we can’t make decisions about a person’s support, staffing changes or new activities without involving them and understanding what is important to them.

By adopting a Person Centred Approach, we ensure that each individual is really listened to and that we understand their goals, likes, hobbies and interests. We involve the people we support and hear their voices in a number of ways.

 

Employment 

At No Limits Community Services, we believe that every person with a learning disability should have the opportunity to work.

Whether it’s a full-time or part-time role, paid or volunteering we encourage the people we support to fulfil their personal aspirations and play an active role in their community.

For many people, working isn’t just about earning money. Employment plays a big part in meeting new people, learning new skills and feeling valued as part of society – economic participation.

Autism

We understand that each child, young person or adult with autism that we support is unique.

An Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex lifelong developmental disability that affects the way a child, young person or adult communicates and relates to both people and the world around them. The term ‘spectrum’ is used because although there are three main areas of difficulty that affect all people with autism – social communication, social interaction and social imagination - the condition varies significantly between individuals.

Our skilled staff start from building an understanding of each person’s specific pattern of strengths and needs, using Person Centred Approaches to help them achieve their wishes and goals. We work closely with families to plan for the future and ensure each person we support is able to live a life that makes sense to them.

We recognise that transition is one of the most difficult times for a young person with autism, so we offer extensive support for transition into school and residential placements and for the next steps as the young person makes the step into adult life.
