Gable Healthcare is committed to delivering its services in a manner which promotes the safety and security of service users at all times. We have a comprehensive Safeguarding Adults Policy and a Whistleblowing Policy which underpins our commitment to ensuring the wellbeing and safety of all individuals.
We believe in a positive approach to risk taking whereby people can experience important opportunities for personal development whilst also being kept safe from harm in accordance with our duty of care
We promote health and wellbeing as a key theme within support planning and person centred planning. All service users have detailed Health Action Plans to ensure that their health needs are met.
Within our services there is an emphasis on healthy living, eating, exercise and health promotion to enable service users to improve their physical and mental wellbeing and to manage their own healthcare needs as fully as possible.
Service users are supported to access all of the health care resources available to them and to receive a level of proactive and preventative healthcare which is as good as or better than that enjoyed by the general population.
Where a service user requires support with personal care this is delivered in such a way as to protect and promote their dignity whilst also maximising their independence wherever possible
Gable Healthcare we are committed to delivering our services in ways that promote both enjoyment and achievement for the people that we support. We support people to have access to leisure, social activities, life long learning and to universal public and commercial services and work in partnership with other agencies and service to achieve this.
We are committed to ensuring that all individuals are able to make positive contributions both within their own lives and within their local communities.
Our services are characterised by a high level of service user involvement. User involvement adds value our services and provides an essential resource in terms of peer support for other service users.
Service users are involved in the design, planning and delivery of our services. Activities include:
Activities in community settings
Activities, sessions and groups within Day services
Developing support networks
Involvement in the promotion of the service
Staff recruitment and training
Involvement with designing and updating policies and procedures

We aim to build on service users existing skills and interests and utilise the resources to develop these
We believe it is essential for the people we support to have access to income and resources sufficient for a good diet, accommodation and participation in family and community life. It is also important that people can meet costs arising from individual needs that they may have.
We support service users to effectively budget their finances where this is an identified need and our supporting team can provide expert advice and support in this area.
