About Us

Paradigm is a leading learning disability training and development agency. We have a passion for connecting people, ideas and action to ensure an ordinary life for all. We love supporting people to discover their potential and to live the lives they choose.

Paradigm has a talented team of very passionate, committed and experienced Associates, some with a learning disability and some without a learning disability. Each Associate brings their own specialisms and we match these specialisms to each customer’s needs.

What we offer includes:

– ‘off-the-shelf’ and tailor made training days and workshops (such as  Individual Service Design, Person Centred Thinking and Community Connecting)

– the Reach Standards in Support for Living (fundamental principles for Supported Living).

– tailor-made service reviews / organisational development support / policies and procedure reviews

– our annual ‘Inclusive Leadership Laboratory’.

– memberships to networks such as our Ordinary Life network where people across the country link to push the drive for ordinary lives for all.

Generally, everything we do falls under the following 7 themes:

  1. Discover me, my decisions
  2. My love life, my relationships
  3. Engaging families
  4. Good support
  5. The power of the community
  6. Policies and procedures to liberate me
  7. Growing a positive culture

We want our partnership with our customers to be inspiring, powerful and thought provoking, and we ensure this by:

-Engaging,  listening and learning from people directly

-focusing on the wishes and aspirations of people with learning   disabilities

-finding innovative and creative solutions

– inspiring people to connect hearts, minds and actions

– being excited about possibilities

-working alongside self-advocates to co-produce and co- deliver 80% of our training and development

– not being afraid to challenging people’s thinking
