People we work alongside experience multiple barriers to independent living that has led them to require our services. Relationship breakdown, poverty, poor housing, mental health, substance misuse, leaving care, homelessness or fleeing war and persecution are all factors that have played their part.
At the centre of our work is a focus on working in a person-centred way putting the recipient of our services at the centre of our service. Our services are underpinned by a core set of theories and evidence-based practice. We train colleagues in understanding how to practically implement these through their support work.
Across the whole organisation there is evidence of colleagues working within Psychologically Informed Environments (PIE’s). This is a space where services understand service user’s and colleagues needs in a thoughtful way. This approach becomes particularly important in situations where individuals have complex needs or have experienced trauma.
Support services are delivered in a trauma sensitive way with an understanding of Adverse Childhood Experiences. Our services acknowledge that ACEs will influence a person’s progress and outcomes. Those we work alongside with may have experienced significant trauma in their lives that affects their reality.
Our colleagues use Restorative approaches to support people to manage conflict constructively and repair relationships in an effective way.
We are experienced in delivering services that help people tackle tough issues like unemployment, poverty, domestic violence, poor mental health, and anti-social behaviour.
Support Services at Taff are growing on its continued success, we have strong, resilient teams that benefit from training, supervision, and development opportunities. We are innovative in our service delivery and creative in the ways that we offer support. We believe that each person that accesses our services are unique in their support needs and our flexible approach allows change to happen.
