Richmond announcement

Certitude is delighted to announce that it has been chosen by the London Borough of Richmond to provide a range of supported living and residential support for people with learning disabilities living in Richmond.

The contract will commence early in 2016 and includes some long standing services as well a number of new services designed specifically to support young people with complex needs as they move into adulthood.

Cllr David Marlow, Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Adult Services, said:

“Helping the most vulnerable adults in our community must be at the heart of everything we do. Supported living helps people with a learning disability to live independently. The services they receive help them with every day skills, personal care, travel, training or indeed employment.

“It enables them to embrace independence by supporting them to be able to make their own choices and decisions about their lives.”

Certitude Chief Executive, Aisling Duffy says:

“We are so pleased to be able to extend our support to Richmond. We very much look forward to getting to know the people we will be supporting, their families, staff and wider support networks and working together with Richmond Borough Council to ensure people have support which is right for them. At Certitude we believe that everyone has the right to a good life. Understandably, people want different things – it is our job to listen, find out what people want and then work together to make it happen.”
