We support individuals with a range of learning disabilities, including mild, moderate, and profound & multiple disabilities. This can also include people with a physical disability or complex health needs, including behaviours described as challenging.
Potens provided a range of service for people with an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) to support them with rehabilitation no matter what their needs. Support ranges dependent on individual need and we work closely with health professionals to transform lives.
Our aim is for every person to gain/regain the skills and confidence they need to get back in the driving seat. Recovery focused practice uses these skills and personal strengths as the platform on which recovery can be built.
