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.

A Positive Approach for Fiona*


Small new danshell 4 Web Size

After assessment, a decision was taken that Fiona* was to come to Yew Trees. There had been some discussion as to whether a forensic service was more appropriate for her needs, but it was decided that the environment at Yew Trees could be a more positive step for Fiona* than a more secure setting.

Fiona* felt that she had been let down in many ways and that there had not been consistency in her care. She had lost her faith that a service could provide the care and support she needed and felt as though she had nothing to look forward to.

The team at Yew Trees worked closely with Fiona* and her family in order to build a positive relationship and rebuild trust. This approach helped Fiona* to gain confidence in the support and care she was receiving and allowed her to focus on herself. She gained greater independence, and through a structured approach, she was able to move to a supported home and she now attends college.
