For Friends and Family

If you're caring for a person with a learning disability, you can lean on us for support, information and advice. We help people with a mild to profound learning disability remain as independent as possible within their own home and community - and live their life, their way.

At Turning Point, Esther was given all the support she needed to help her become more independent and grow and mature as a person, which she did – in bucket loads.

We understand that caring for someone with a learning disability brings many decisions and challenges - from the big questions like where they live, to managing day-to-day activities.

We empower people to make their own choices and live their own lives with dignity. And the more complex someone's needs are, the harder we try.

Crucially, our service is dedicated, high quality and personalised. We always strive to go above and beyond, providing the kind of one-to-one support that's right for the individual.

We keep you updated with everything going on through our friends and family magazine The Link.




It can be difficult to measure our impact on people's lives, so we created SPOT (Support Planning Outcomes Tool). This unique tool shows how we're meeting people's needs, helping them fulfil their wishes and track their progress. It also forms our basis for measuring the sector's overall outcomes.

Person Centred Approach

We treat everyone as an individual, addressing their own unique needs. To ensure we achieve this fully person-centred approach, we've developed measurement tools that help us benchmark our performance and show we're making a tangible difference.

Clinical Governance and Quality Assurance

We are dedicated to the people we support - offering them high quality, award winning services. We foster a culture of excellence and have rigorous checks in place to make sure we consistently meet these high standards we set ourselves.
