Our Exhibitors:

Golden Lane Housing (GLH) provides individually tailored, high-quality and flexible housing services across England and Wales. We were established by Mencap as an independent charity to help tackle the immense challenges people with a learning disability face in finding a home.

GLH are here to make sure that more and more people with a learning disability can live their lives as they choose, are valued equally and listened to. Using the supported living approach we have housed over 1,400 people in a location of their choice.

Time designers Ltd is a small company co owned by Rachel Mason, a family carer with 2 sons with Autism and Learning disabilities. The products and resources that TD offer in the area of social care, Education and health have been built from personal experience and first hand knowledge so they will always be practical, meaningful and are designed to make a real difference. 

The 247grid is a perfect resource for service professionals and care providers to have in their tool kit when working with individuals and their families Along side traditional Person centred planning tools, this visual mapping tool is really effective to support a client to look at the structure of their daily lives, identify the barriers and the support they need to achieve their goals.

The 247grid is then a key resource to aid the deployment of services and other innovative use of assistive technology and community solutions to address the barriers effectively.

Those clients with few literacy skills can be engaged in every aspect of their support delivery using the 247grid's visual display and empowering format. It is very helpful in explaining where their funding is being spent.

The Challenging Behaviour Foundation We are the charity for people with severe learning disabilities whose behaviour challenges. We’re making a difference to the lives of children and adults across the UK through:

  • information about challenging behaviour
  • peer support for family carers and professionals
  • supporting families by phone or email running
  • workshops to reduce challenging behaviour
  • speaking up for families nationally

Our vision is for anyone with severe learning disabilities who displays challenging behaviour to have the same life opportunities as everyone else.

We work to improve understanding of challenging behaviour, empower families with information and support, and help others to provide better services and more opportunities.
