The Footsteps Group has been providing services for people with learning disabilities since 2004. The groups services include:

We have 18 years of experience running children services and a very good track record of meeting quality standards in this area. Over the years we have developed staff and our services so that they can be flexibly applied to the needs of children accessing the service. Our services are carried out ensuring that the fundamental principles of the Human Rights Act are upheld .

A key strategy that we use is the promotion of person centred planning and support, enabling the views of children and significant others to influence  where possible how they wish to be supported and cared for. Great emphasis is placed on the way our staff communicate with children with learning disabilities. A learning disability is known to affect the way a child understands information and how they communicate. This means that the children for whom we care can have difficulty:
  1. understanding new or complex information;
  2. learning new skills;
  3. coping independently.
We believe that having a learning disability should not stop a child from having a full and enjoyable life. Our staff are here to care, support and help children with learning disabilities develop and deal with every day life events. Our Children Services are regulated by Ofsted and our Outreach Service is regulated by CQC. Both services are subject to regular inspections and the outcome of these inspections are available to users and potential users of the service.

Our services provide for seamless transition from our residential care services to foster care, rehabilitation with the family or supported living. Each child will have a pathway plan in place prior to leaving our service. This plan would prepare the child for transition to another type of service as agreed by the multi-professional team in consultation with the child.

Our services are based in North East London/Greater London areas and can provide accommodation for children from age 5 to 17 years of age. with learning disabilities and complex needs. We have been working with several  Local Authorities in London and the Home Counties over the past 10 years to look after children with special needs. We continually to employ the experience and  proven strategies in our service as well as adopt new practices and techniques in our continuing quest to improve standards and achieve best outcomes.
