What we do
At Salutem Care and Education, our wide range of services means we can offer support from infancy.
From supported living environments and holistic educational programmes to enriching day opportunities, we’ve curated a diverse portfolio that caters to every stage of life.
With dedicated adult services and specialised children’s provisions, our framework ensures that individuals receive consistent and tailored support from infancy onward.
This continuum of care means that as individuals grow and evolve, Salutem is right there with them, adapting and providing the necessary support throughout their life journey.
Our Adult Care Services are dedicated to delivering exceptional, individualised care and support. We strive to empower individuals to lead fulfilling lives, deeply integrated within their communities while maximising their independence.
We excel in assisting those with complex needs, including those under the Transforming Care programme, individuals with Autism, physical disabilities, learning disabilities, and mental health challenges. Serving as a reliable ally to 120 Local Authorities, we ensure timely and apt care in the most suitable setting.
Trauma encompasses a broad spectrum of distressing events, including abuse or neglect, which can be perceived as emotionally or physically damaging, or even life-threatening. The impact of such events on a child or young person is multifaceted, influenced not only by their personal perception of the event but also by its adverse effects on their emotional, social, spiritual, and physical well-being. It’s essential to understand that each child or young person responds to trauma uniquely.
To encapsulate, psychological trauma can be distilled into the 3 E’s:
Event, Experience, and Effect
By adopting a ‘trauma-informed’ approach, our staff teams can discern when children and young people may be grappling with trauma. This awareness allows them to modify the support they offer, facilitating recovery by fostering understanding and resilience. We work in partnership with Innovating Minds to bring specialised training to help our staff better understand this style of approach in our support and care.
Our supported living division, complemented by customised support packages, empowers adults and young individuals to live within the community, preserving their autonomy through personal tenancies.
We adopt a people-first mindset, collaboratively designing bespoke care plans with each individual, their families, and their representatives.
At the heart of these plans is the emphasis on choice, control, and the encouragement of independence at every opportunity.
At Salutem Care and Education, our commitment to education is both deep-rooted and expansive. Catering to the diverse needs of children, our specialised educational services start as early as 3 years of age and extend up to 25 years, ensuring a seamless transition through developmental milestones.
Recognising the pivotal role of early intervention, our “School for Parents” service offers complimentary sessions for families with children between a few months to 5 years who face motor learning challenges.
Furthermore, our innovative Virtual School, the Chiron Online Education Platform, breaks down barriers, making quality education accessible to everyone, regardless of location or circumstance. Through these initiatives, we embody our dedication to nurturing potential at every stage of growth.
