Dimensions is one of the largest not-for-profit U.K. providers supporting 3,500 people with learning disabilities, autism, behaviour that challenges and complex needs.
The Activate methodology is based on extensive social care research carried out by the Tizard Centre (University of Kent), Dimensions and the Challenge Behaviour Foundation. Research was carried out over 2 year in 24 services and the result was a new support model that would benefit more than 3,500 people supported. Dimensions wanted to address behaviour that challenges in a way that improved people’s lives while also keeping the person at the centre of their own care and support. The problem with a roll out of the methodology on a large scale was delivering a new technological infrastructure to support this outcomes-based model whilst managing the challenging nature of change for the front line workforce.
From learning to peel a potato, to taking the steps needed to have a holiday, the people supported by Dimensions are stretching their horizons more than ever before!
Activate is transforming the lives of the people supported by Dimensions, with 10,000 outcomes already recorded through the iplanit care management system, each with steps to achieving them!
