ARK offers transition services for people with learning disabilities.
We can help you or a person you care for to move from one service to another, or one home to another home, with minimal impact and the best possible support.
We can provide specialist housing for many of the service users we support, with bespoke individualized fixtures and fittings.
We have been involved in various forms of transitions since opening its doors in 1977. Because of this experience and knowledge we have established proven processes and put staff training in place to ensure best outcomes for our service users.
A number of ARK’s internal departments may be involved in the transition process, depending on the needs of service users - including the Housing Department, Service Managers and Team Leaders.
ARK also works alongsidemulti-disciplinary external teams including Local Authorities, OH and the NHS, when sourcing or adapting housing to suit individual service users’ needs and to ensure best outcomes.
Our team leaders and service managers work alongside professionals and other support providers to identify training requirements for all staff involved in the transition process.
ARK Service Managers then work with our Learning and Development Manager, who assists each project to develop a training plan and provides or sources all relevant training required to ensure a successful outcome after the transition.
