Parity for Disability is dedicated to transforming lives. Without the right support, the life of a person with multiple disabilities becomes limited and lonely. Meaningful social contact, learning, achieving and experiencing the world all become impossible.
Parity’s services are there for people with multiple disabilities, their families and carers.
Day Services – Tailored to Each Person
“In setting up the services, we looked at the whole person, and addressed what makes quality of life. We focused on what a person’s physical and psychological needs are. We wanted to ensure that the individual continued to have opportunities to learn, to develop, to have relationships. These things can get neglected.” – Parity Executive Director Alison Cooper
Our learning-based day services recognise each person’s need to keep developing and achieve their potential.
Staff work with each student to tailor projects and activities to suit their interests, goals and personality. The level of staff ensures that each student can fully participate.
Most of the students have little or no speech, so communication is built into all aspects of support. We invest in communication training for the staff, specialist approaches and communication devices.
Parity employs a qualified physiotherapist and speech therapist to address significant issues for adults with multiple disabilities, including relieving stress on the body, developing ways of communicating, and overcoming emotional difficulties. They also train staff to implement exercises and programmes for individual students.
The day services are based in Farnborough, Hampshire, Camberley, Surrey and Mytchett, Surrey. They are open Monday to Friday. Students agree to attend the number of days that suits them, from half a day to five days a week.
An Individual Programme Plan is developed with the student, families, carers, social workers and relevant professionals.
Families and carers
We respect families and carers as experts on a student’s needs and wishes. We provide support and information, and involve them fully in decisions regarding the student.
