Our values

Individuality, dignity and choice are at the heart of our approach to our London and Essex assisted living and supported living services for people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, autism and behavioural needs.

Individuality

Our values

At Sahara Care, service users…

  • have the time and space to be as independent as possible. This ranges from cooking or shopping for themselves and doing their own cleaning or washing to making new friendships and relationships outside their supported living or assisted living service
  • take reasonable risks – understanding and assessing risk can help people to become more independent and taking well thought-out, positive risk can enhance their quality of life
  • are supported sensitively, as and when required.

Dignity

At Sahara Care, each service user…

  • is appreciated and respected as a unique and valued individual
  • makes their own choices about the way they live their life
  • receives support tailored to their physical, communication and behavioural needs.

Choice

At Sahara Care, service users…

  • make their own decisions wherever possible, including about what they eat, when, where and with whom, what activities they take part in, how they manage their time each day
  • are treated as individuals, each with their own wishes and views, not as a communal group.
