Supporting People with Learning Disabilities

Care Providers ~ The Care Division
Learning Disability Care Specialists

We are care providers with a Head Office in Poole, Dorset and branches in Dorchester and Southampton, specialising in domiciliary care and support to adults and children with learning disabilities, who live in the Dorset and Hampshire area, and we are registered with the Care Quality Commission.

Because all of our care work is within this field, with all of our staff trained by our in-house care training company, Care-Ability Training Ltd and all of them experienced in the learning disability care sector, we have a great deal of knowledge across a wide range of disabilities and syndromes incorporating the whole of the autistic spectrum. However, each of our clients have individual needs and each has a package of support that is tailored to meet their specific requirements.

We tell you more about who we are and what we do on these pages, but the main thing we would like you to take away with you is that whoever we are supporting, our principle aim is to ensure that we are helping our clients to live happy and rewarding lives as part of their local community.
