PLUS is a registered charity which offers residential, respite, leisure and employment services for adults with learning disabilities in south east London.
PLUS recognises and celebrates the uniqueness of every individual with a learning disability. Our work enables personal growth, encouraging each person’s voice to be clearly heard in decision-making and lifestyle choices.
We aim to provide the standards of service and support which we would choose for ourselves or those close to us.
Our work is guided by a Shadow Board composed of adults with learning disabilities who use our services. The Shadow Board is central to many of the innovations and aspirations PLUS develops.
We work to accreditations with the Care Quality Commission, Investors in People and Positive about Disability. We are support providers for Croydon Council and the Boroughs of Lewisham and Southwark. We are working with Spice Time Credits (Lewisham), in line with our commitment to building relationships with complementary local organisations.
PLUS services include registered care, supported living, residential respite care, community based respite, family support, outreach, training and employment for people with learning disabilities.
