Warrington Community Living (WCL) was established in 1991 and has a long history of supporting people in Warrington. Warrington Community Living is a local charity that seeks to support people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, older people, people with dementia and people experiencing mental health issues to lead their lives in a purposeful, healthy and enjoyable way as full and equal members of their local community. We do this through the provision of residential homes and supported living schemes, provision of short breaks for children and young people as well as other forms of support for individuals in the the community.
We now incorporate the former Warrington Community Care and Warrington Mind who have merged into our organisation.
We employ specialist staff including learning disability and mental health nurses and have expertise in the support of many forms of learning and physical disability, dementia and autism.
We currently support nearly 500 people in the Warrington area with the help of around 250 full and part-time staff.
Much of our work is funded by fee income from the local authority and NHS commissioners. However, the development of new services and premises and the daily added value we offer to the people who use our services, relies heavily upon the charity’s voluntary income and reserves.
Therefore Warrington Community Living welcomes donations of money, time, expertise or equipment and goods that we need to continue to provide the high quality of provision that the people who use our services deserve.
Our Respect Statement
This statement applies to the people we support, their families, our colleagues and any other people we come into contact with who all helped to write it
Warrington Community Living believes that everyone deserves respect
Respect is about feeling valued for who you are, for what you achieve and for your ambitions
Respect values the differences that make people individual and does not accept discrimination or offensive behaviour
Respect helps people feel safe, so aggressive behaviour and offensive language is not acceptable
Respect means people feel confident that information about their lives is understood to be personal and ensures it is treated with care and respect
Respect requires us to help each other to maintain personal dignity
Where respect is not shown, we all have a responsibility to take action
