The Richardson Partnership for Care provides specialist residential care for adults with learning disabilities, autistic spectrum disorders, acquired brain injuries, complex behaviour that challenges and mental health needs.

We provide a caring, friendly and homely environment, treating service users with dignity and respect and encouraging social integration and participation. This genuinely warm atmosphere prevents the social isolation and loneliness that can be experienced in other settings.

The environment, support staff and team of therapists combine to deliver excellent rehabilitation services and results. Rehabilitation programmes are goal-orientated and designed to meet each individual’s needs. 

Our multi-disciplinary support team comprises:

- Consultant Clinical Psychologist
- Clinical Psychologist
- Assistant Psychologists
- Consultant Neuropsychiatrist
- Neuro Physiotherapists
- Occupational therapist
- Neuro Speech and Language therapist

We aim to enable service users to fulfil their potential by providing the right environment and appropriate level of clinical care. The individual service user is at the very heart of our care provision, receiving a tailored and flexible care plan developed by our multi-disciplinary team.

The Richardson Partnership for Care is an ASDAN-accredited centre, providing programmes from the Award Scheme Development & Accreditation Network in-house for our service users. This helps them to develop skills for learning, employment and for life, achieving accredited qualifications. Being able to complete the programme in their home means that service users can learn in their own environment from staff that they know and trust.

Our services include:

- Managing the transition of young adults with learning difficulties to an adult residential environment
- Residential care, support and treatment for adults with learning difficulties
- Managing complex needs and behaviours that challenge
- Intensive brain injury rehabilitation
- Slow-stream long term brain injury rehabilitation
- Respite care, emergency respite care and top-up rehabilitation
- Transitional care

Established in 1989, The Richardson Partnership for Care is a privately run, family business which takes a long-term view and invests in its future to provide a long-term stable environment for service users.

Testimonials from family members of service users with acquired brain injuries

  “My son has improved in leaps and bounds since he was transferred to Richardson Homes from the hospital. The staff are lovely - caring and sympathetic to my son's day to day needs. I know we still have a long road ahead but with the care he is receiving we know that he will continue to improve.”

“I recommend this care home as it’s an excellent home. Their care is outstanding they treat the residents as human beings and give care and love. They have been impeccable to my brother that has a brain injury and round the clock care, they speak to me regularly and inform me of all the care my brother needs. The staff are kind and very caring. I wish all care homes are as excellent as this one because if you have a relative that needs the 24 hours care, the family unit can at least be comforted to know that the relatives are taken good care of. If you had staff that truly care for the residents then you have a great home and the staff at Richardson Mews do care and so they make it a great home. Thank you.”

Testimonials from family members of service users with learning difficulties

“Over a period of ten years, my nephew has presented with very challenging behaviour. Having his time with the Richardson Partnership, his behaviour has improved as a result of excellent care. This consists of reducing the ‘chemical cost’ of reducing drug therapy with a range of behaviour modification and genuine and dedicated care, which we greatly appreciate”.

“All our son's needs are catered for in the best possible way. He loves living with The Richardson Partnership for Care, and has a much better life than he has with us at home. Carers are competent and cheerful, and most stay there for many years. Residents also stay for many years, making it a very stable environment which is very necessary. He is provided with a wonderfully full life, with every possible interest catered for. Care is taken that he has much independence as appropriate.”
