Walton Resource Centre (Keys Group)
Walton Resource Centre is registered as a structured day service. We provide social skills and leisure activities, support and resources to adults with learning disabilities, including PMLD. We regard ourselves as an ASD specialist service.
The Resource Centre is staffed with a highly skilled and qualified team of professionals and is equipped to offer a wide range of resources to young people and adults who have complex needs, including learning difficulties and behaviours that are challenging or inappropriate in community settings.
At Walton Resource Centre we provide people with a carefully designed and highly person-centred service which will meet their unique intellectual, interpersonal and social needs, fostering independence and promoting a full and active life.
The support we provide
Walton Resource Centre provides locally based, easily accessible, high quality and person-centred day service programmes comprising social/recreational activities, to young people and adults with moderate to severe learning difficulties.
Individual needs are thoroughly assessed during initial planning and via on-going assessment and review.
We provide a comfortable, safe, supportive and newly refurbished environment in which people can develop as more fulfilled adult individuals. We identify people’s preferred method of communication and ensure that their skills are developed and used in all areas of activity.
Activities are incorporated into a broad, balanced relevant timetable of activities which accommodates care plans and individual and environmental risk assessments whilst acknowledging each individuals’ needs, interests and aspirations. We offer a diverse range of on-site and off-site activities, including art & crafts, drama & music therapy, music and movement, music and performance, horticulture, cycling, swimming, health and fitness, yoga, hydrotherapy (on-site pool), salon hair and beauty, cookery and computer skills. We employ third-party professional facilitators to deliver key sessions. We have three minibuses and access facilities in our own community and across the city region. We also link with other providers to access and support their facilities.
A fresh, cooked meal is provided daily at the Resource Centre for everyone we support and we cater for a wide range of dietary requirements.
We employ a qualified chef and a full-time nurse (RNLD). We also have access to qualified in-house speech and language therapy as well as linking with referred health authority professionals (SALT, OT and Physio, other).
We ensure equality of opportunity, irrespective of gender, race, disadvantage or disability and we respect individual’s alternative religious, cultural and lifestyle choices and/or beliefs.
A major emphasis of our work is based on community inclusion. Community access represents an integral component of our activities programme and can involve an individual or group using our minubuses or public transport to access and experience the local or wider community.
