Weâ€™re looking to create a network of eight dynamic & innovative organisations who are prepared to lead the way. This will involve: Working collaboratively with seven other organisations to build on the thinking started with John Oâ€™Brien on Sept 5th listening to a wide range of perspectives to develop policies and procedures that concentrate on what staff could do rather than on what they must not do Challenging the risk averse culture we operate in, and converting that dissatisfaction into practical and positive action Engaging with CQC to have them endorse the process being used and the objectives of the EAOL approach. Having CQC as an ally rather than a mythical adversary.

Paradigm is passionate about enhancing and improving the quality of Supported Living, or as we now describe it, Support for LIVING. This, the only course of its kind in the UK, is designed to enable staff and self-advocates to become trainers in their own agencies developing a more profound understanding of quality support for living an ordinary life.
Everyone involved in a personâ€™s life needs to have the respect of each personâ€™s individuality, a belief in citizenship, the ability to support a person to truly shape their life and the desire to support people to have the same rights and responsibilities as anyone else. Person Centred Thinking focuses on these values and beliefs which underpin our work and approaches when planning and supporting anyone.
