Our principles

1st Enable adopts its principles from the NDTI Feeling Settled toolkit (Appendix 1) which is endorsed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and ADASS. We are active members of the National Care Association, STOMP, Driving Up Quality and we are currently working our way up the Learning Disability Confident Levels.

We have developed a team of quality checkers who assess us against a series of quality guidelines. These guidelines are currently being developed by the quality checkers focus group and are effectively benchmarking services against the REACH Standards.

1st Enable has invested in developing a dedicated Positive Behavioural Support Department. This supports our existing complex services as well as individuals who need extra input from time-to-time, to pro-actively help manage any anxieties and de-escalate incidents.

Our Clinical Director and PBS lead are both IABA trained, which is a globally acclaimed and accredited course on Applied Behavioural Analysis for which Sarah trained at the academy in Los Angeles.
