Support for the life you choose
Enabling people to lead their lives through opportunity and choice across Cornwall and Devon, including Torbay and the city of Plymouth.
If you are a person who has a diagnosis of a learning disability, or other support needs that we can help with, one of Havencare’s Big Aims is “support for the life you choose”
We see every person for their potential, not their historical labels that may have been the product of trauma, bad experiences, and not being understood.
We also help wider support networks including families and communities to enable people to reach their potential and live their lives through opportunity and choice.
At Havencare we focus on living life, not just safe existence. We help people to learn the skills they need to be in control of what they do, experiencing happiness in whatever way they choose.
We understand that distressed behaviour can be caused by previous traumas. We learn as much as we can to support people when they might be upset, scared, in pain or feeling out of control. We see all behaviour as communication. We focus on the reasons for distressed behaviour, rather than the behaviour itself, then we work to support the unmet need being communicated.
Sometimes an individual might not know how, or be able to tell us how they are feeling in a way we understand, so we work hard to connect with and learn their communication that may be without words.
Thank you… for your dedication and hard work to support… you are such an amazing organisation Sister of an individual being supported by Havencare
