United Response provides a range of services for people with learning disabilities, mental health needs or physical disabilities. The services we provide depend on each person we work with. We can provide 24-hour support for people with complex needs. We can job coach someone into work. We can provide outreach support for someone with a mental health need or work with people to be in control of the support they choose. The key is that we work with each person to do the things they want to do, supporting them to communicate what they want and tell us how we are doing.
