W&P Launch NEW Learning Disability Policies.

W&P Launch NEW Learning Disability Policies.

Designed for Supported Living and Domiciliary providers that deliver CQC regulated activities to adults with Learning Disabilities. Services for people with Learning Disabilities have been under increased scrutiny since the Winterbourne View scandal and large institutional settings will no longer be the standard. Providers of services for people with a Learning Disability and/or Autism must demonstrate that their service is in line with building the right support and the accompanying service model, W&P’s Policies will help you achieve that.

These new Policies are divided into 3 sections for ease of reference:

  • Direct Care Policies – These relate directly to the provision of care and support
  • Managing Care Policies – All you need to manage the service effectively
  • Staffing Policies – Everything from employing, training and managing your staff

Like all W&P Policies, they are carefully researched, clearly written and easy to use. They are written in MS word and for easy navigation and there are links at the head of each policy that takes you directly to the sections that require your input to personalise them to your business i.e. your named Safeguarding Lead, or Health & Safety Representative.

Another useful feature is we include links to useful sources of information at the end of the policy such as Best Practice Guidance from the Social Care Institute of Excellence (SCIE) or the British Institute for Learning Disabilities (BILD). These are a valuable source of reference should you wish to explore certain elements of your policies in more detail.

There is also a supplementary set of key Easy Ready Policies for key subject such as: Safeguarding, Complaints and Equality and Diversity. This makes the policies more accessible to service users and staff who have a learning disability, which helps your service to meet the principles of the Accessible Information Standard. The Easy Read Policies can be purchased as package price with the full standard set or is available as a stand alone set for £250 plus vat.

To ensure your policies are always relevant, we constantly keep up to date with the latest industry news and policy developments. We then review and amend where necessary the Policies every 4 months to reflect these changes to ensure you are always operating the latest regulatory standards and good practice guidance. This service is completely FREE when you purchase the full set and its an optional £195 per year (ex-vat) thereafter to maintain the service, that’s less than £4 a week for complete peace of mind. For further convenience just sign up to the direct debit scheme and we will simply notify you when your subscription is due for renewal but you can still cancel at any time if you wish.

Unlike some Policy providers, there are no license agreements, restrictive clauses or long- term commitments, when you buy W&P Policies, it’s a one-off cost of £995.00 plus vat and they are yours to keep and you can use in as many locations as you want. The only ongoing cost is the Update Service which is FREE in the first year but completely optional thereafter.
