Learning disability specialist NobleCare has won funding from Health Education England and Skills for Care to provide Positive Behaviour Support and Autism Awareness training at three of its homes in the Midlands.
Due to start in January this year, the funding will enhance NobleCare’s existing comprehensive training programmes for staff that include its own in-house NobleCare university and Care MBA programmes.
The award will be used to fund enhanced training for staff to support the discharge of persons with learning disabilities and autism that are at risk of displaying, behaviours which challenge services who are currently in-patients or to maintain and improve the care and support persons at risk of hospital admission.
Kam Takhar, Director at NobleCare, said.
“NobleCare is rare in offering an effective service that has a proven record of successful hospital discharges for people with autism and behaviours that may challenge services.
”Our team works hard so that once discharged into the community service users lead happy fulfilled lives and do not end up back in hospital. This funding we have been awarded supports the NHS England Transforming Care Programme and will allow us to better support service users, building on our existing partnerships with local hospitals and commissioners”.
NobleCare is best known for supporting people with autism and behaviours that may challenge. The organisation supports people in the Midlands. Its newest Midlands service for people with autism and complex needs, Noble Villas, opens in spring.
