Our Services

What we do

Saracen Care enables greater choice and independence for supported individuals, facilitating good quality and safe housing options. At Saracen Care we aim to encourage and motivate people to become more self-reliant, supporting their needs whilst realising their wants and desires via a positive risk management approach.

Saracen Care is well known for successfully supporting individuals with complex needs and behaviours that challenge. By providing the right setting with top quality support and a partnership approach with all stakeholders we constantly see individuals flourish in our services. We work hard to tailor Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) and Positive Behavioural Management (PBM) plans to realise outcomes and work towards calm and fulfilled settings. Analysis of behaviours and constant tailoring of plans and support options lie at the heart of our successes.

All the staff that work as part of the team at Whaddon are thoughtful, caring, professional and dedicated to the people they support. They are always thinking of new activities that suit both the individuals, as well as activities that allow them to be together. The whole team are very approachable, and nothing is ever too much trouble. Each member of staff also know what my son’s needs are, so I don’t have to explain anything to them, they just ‘know’. To trust other people to take care of your child (even though he is an adult!) is not an easy thing to do and the staff at Whaddon have earned my trust completely. I know that they have got my son’s best interests at heart, and I know they want him to ‘live his best life’ just as much as I do!
