About Us...

Currently, people are moving towards ‘Direct Payments’ and ‘Personal Budgets’, giving a person much more control and choice in the service they receive.

Who-We-AreHowever, following the restructure and consultation meetings between service users, parents and carers, it was highlighted by Lincolnshire County Council that there was still a need for building based services.

‘Diversity’ was formed after our posts as Day Service Modernisation Officers for Lincolnshire County Council were disestablished. For this reason, with our wealth of experience and qualifications, we felt we were more than able to provide a building based service, whilst still promoting community presence and personal choice.

Together we have over 65 years experience between us – working in the care sector with adults who have learning disabilities. Our roles have followed the trends of Government ‘forward thinking’ – evolving from the old style ‘Adult Education Centres’ to ‘Social Education Centres’ to ‘Outreach Community Bases’.

‘Diversity’ was delighted to secure the ‘Clarke Road’ venue. It is a wonderful venue offering facilities and space for a whole range of activities both inside and out, being ideally located to access lots of local community facilities. We feel the activities and support services we can offer from here are endless!

We are both extremely experienced in taking lead roles in setting up day centre activities and supporting access to community facilities. Whilst we are more than happy to do this, we very much want ‘Diversity’ to be about helping people tailor the service and activities they want for themselves.

We are experienced in ‘person centred planning’ and would like each person to have their own one page profile when they join us. Following this, if you wish, we can work together on a more in-depth person centred plan – so together, we can plan what you would really like to do and what service you want us to provide for you – be it growing tomatoes, cooking a meal or work experience – OUR AIM IS TO HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS! We want YOU to tell us when and what service YOU would like! YOUR SUPPORT, YOUR WAY!

We are very passionate about the work we do and are fully committed to providing a meaningful, quality, person focused service. We look forward to working with you soon.
