Praxis Care “Strategy 2025” Released
Praxis Care “Strategy 2025” Released
Our new guiding document, Strategy 2025, shares our aims to expand services across Northern Ireland, Ireland, Great Britain and the Isle of Man in the next five years. The expansion will be based on our successes in designing specific services to meet the individual needs of service users.
The improvement in people’s lives, which relies heavily on bespoke accommodation, multidisciplinary input and a collaborative approach with statutory services, has been successful across the range of our activities and sites.
Our Chief Executive, Andy Mayhew, says Praxis Care, which supports 1,500 people, stands out because of our decades of experience providing innovative, professional, high-quality support services to people across the spectrum of need and particularly at the higher level of complexity.
We are growing in response to the high demand for our services and aim to expand to support 3,000 individuals by 2025.
Our strategy for the next five years is to build on what we have learned. It is about working alongside service users and their families to create bespoke support and accommodation solutions, which reflect their choices, are informed by contemporary evidence-based practice from research and are delivered by highly trained and well-supported staff.
We have seen remarkable improvements in our clients’ daily lives as they receive the support they need to live a full and happy life.Andy Mayhew, CEO
We are due to open a new day centre in Leicester in close partnership with a group of parents of adult children with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD). This is the latest example of co-production, where the service users and their families take a leading role in developing the service.
We employ 1,650 people and are Northern Ireland’s largest charity provider of care for adults and children affected by mental ill health, learning disability, autism and dementia.
The strategy to take Praxis Care to 2025 outlines the way forward for our continued development across all four jurisdictions (Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Great Britain and the Isle of Man). Shaped around individuals—service users, their families, our staff and our partners—the strategy maps the key areas of training staff, designing service models and environments specific to individual service users, focusing on research and innovation through partnerships including leading Queens University academics and consolidating targets in terms of finance and personnel.
