Danshell Learning Disability and Autism Services 

Danshell supports and cares for adults living with a learning disability or autism in specialist hospitals and residential services. Our aim is to deliver effective and outcome based services within person centred, professional care environments. We support individuals with a learning disability, who are on the autistic spectrum or have mental or physical ill health. We set high standards for ourselves in the delivery of care, and most importantly, we put service users at the centre of everything we do.

Joan's* Journey


Small new danshell 3 Web Size

Joan* came to Oaklands having been on a section 37 for more than twenty years. She had several previous placements breakdown and her ties with her family had become weakened over time. Although Joan* had many skills, she had become very institutionalised and did not believe she had the capability to live more independently.

The support package we provided for Joan* focused on a progressive programme to build her knowledge and confidence. It included money management and budgeting, social skills and self-care. These interventions improved her self-esteem and confidence, which in turn enabled her to move from a hospital to a smaller service. Joan* has now returned to the area where she grew up. She is managing well with minimal staff input and has also began to re-establish the relationships with her family, who live within the area.
