Welcome to Unity Dorset: Approved Dorset Council Framework Provider & ISF Provider

Supported living is aimed to promote independence and allow individuals to feel like they have their own home without too much intrusion from their support. Support is present on a one to one basis and available depending on the individuals support hours requirements. If individuals need emergency assistance outside of their support hours they can use the on-call system to access help.

No we only provide prompt and support to our service users. We can support individuals with personal care needs where assisted technology can be used or arrange for a domiciliary provider to complete personal care.

Yes. Unity Dorset currently support several service users in their own homes to help them maintain levels of independence.

Unity Dorset will provide bespoke support depending on the service user’s needs. This will be assessed pre-commencement of a contract to ensure we have the correct support in place to attend to needs.

Unity Dorset uses a value and competency based interview process where we involve our service users as much as possible.  We believe that our service users should have an input into the staff who could be supporting them. We ensure all candidates are subject to an enhanced DBS check and clear references to ensure the safeguarding of our service users and staff.

Unity Dorset will arrange a meeting with professionals, the service user, the service users family and/or advocate to complete a person centred and outcome focused support plan. In order for us to complete a person centred support plan we complete the following stages

Needs Assessment

Risk Assessment and Risk Management Plan

Goal and Outcome Planning

Unity Dorset will involve you in your care as much or as little as you want. When we complete our needs and risk assessment and support plan; you are involved from the start. Your family/advocate is also encouraged to have involvement unless you wish them not to.  You have a right to be involved and consulted at all times throughout your care and your support plan is regularly reviewed to ensure your needs are being met.
