Enhance Learning and Support have experienced consultants who are trained at management level to support organisations at a strategic level in their service development to ensure they meet the complex needs of people with a learning disability.
We want them to feel supported and valued.
Chrissy has been great in supporting me during my first year in my new role as a school nurse. She has provided me with a lot of research and training materials which have been useful. Each clinical supervision session has provided me with valuable information and knowledge which has further developed my role within school. Chrissy is a good listener and she has helped me settle in and build my confidence.
Kiran – school nurse
I have been receiving clinical supervision from Chrissy. I work in isolation from other health professionals and having someone come in who understands my role is invaluable. Chrissy ensures I am up to date on my clinical skills to ensure I can meet the needs of the pupils I support. Chrissy has provided me with a great induction into special needs an area I didn’t have a lot of experience and knowledge about. Chrissy has supported me along the way with my revalidation and ensures my portfolio is up to date and ready which is stress free.

When offering a service to people with a learning disability it is important to get it right.
Some services have had a detrimental effect on the health, social and mental well-being of people with a learning disability, and in some cases, this has resulted in death.
It is important that organisations learn from the mistakes of others and ensure that their services strive for the best possible outcome for their learning disability users.
We need to ensure that people with a learning disability are given the opportunity to reach their full potential when accessing a service, with their needs being met holistically and on an individual level.
All organisations offering a service to people with a learning disability should be flexible to meet their needs.
There has been a lot of social policy change to support people with a learning disability who face inequalities, however sadly there is still a long way to go before the gap is closed.
People with a learning disability still face poor care, abuse and health and social care needs not being met, from services that are meant to be supporting these vulnerable people.
People with a learning disability have the same rights as everyone else, they especially have the right to good quality care from service providers. People with a learning disability should be empowered to have their voices heard and their aspirations met.
