Gr8 Support Movement

In May 2017 Paradigm launched The Gr8 Support Movement for Direct Support Staff (support workers, teams leaders and manager) working across the UK with children, young people and adults with learning disabilities and autism.

The Movement is the first of its kind. It is values-based, thought provoking, encouraging and highly interactive.
It deploys contemporary methodologies to develop genuine connections and facilitate shared learning and mutual support across the membership. Encouraging Direct Support Workers to:

  • Consistently be the best they can be
  • Celebrate the Gr8 stuff by sharing and learning with others
  • Accept responsibility for their own practice and
  • Find alternative solutions with those they support and colleagues, despite all the current challenges placed on the sector.
