Outstanding Progress

Peter is a man in his 60s with a learning and physical disability. Before coming to Active Prospects, he had lived in institutional settings since the age of 8.

Peter’s previous support provider shared a number of concerns about his behaviours during the assessment process. However, Active Prospects felt that with an outcome-based model of support and an Active support strategy backed with comprehensive positive behaviour support, the team would be able to meet all of Peter’s needs.

How did Peter make outstanding progress?

Peter’s previous support provider shared a number of concerns about his behaviours during the assessment process. However, Active Prospects felt that with an outcome-based model of support and an Active support strategy backed with comprehensive positive behaviour support, the team would be able to meet all of Peter’s needs.

Peter moved into his new home in 2019 and settled quickly. He is a vibrant individual, full of laughs, and loves to engage with people. He enjoys arts and crafts, singing and dancing, and watching horse racing. He likes to go to the local shop every day to get his own newspaper. He is a friendly, loving person who will say hello to everyone he meets in the shop. He likes to pay for items by himself and tries to be as independent as possible.

Through assistive technology, Peter is able to enjoy different types of music. He is able to do video calls (using a smartphone) with his sister and his brother, and regularly sends gifts to them in the post including craft items which he designed himself with support from staff.

Since Peter moved into his own home, he has made outstanding progress; there have been no incidents of behaviours of concern, and his mental health has improved significantly. The labels which have been placed on P throughout his life are now in the past.
