In 1976, armed with a single phone in a rented office, Dimensions began supporting people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs out of institutions, helping them lead ordinary lives in their local communities.
Forty years on, their work is fundamentally unchanged: they support people with learning disabilities and autism to have a louder voice, choice and control in their lives. Our 7000 colleagues deliver ambitious, effective, personalised support often with those whose previous support has not been successful.
Working alongside their colleagues are family members and many of the people we support. They could be quality checkers, interviewers or members of their Council. Their voices and experiences inform the research they use to deliver improved outcomes. Together, they continue to prove that life really can get better.
Sandra Lord who is a Performance Coach, discussed how Dimensions are helping local people in and around Bath, by providing person centred care to achieve their goals and live happy successful lives.
Sandra also discussed how you can get involved, including with their flexible working opportunities – if your values align with those mentioned and you have the appetite to join them on their journey, then you can find Dimensions career opportunities here.
