New bespoke specialist accommodation and support provision opens in Wiltshire

by Kirsty Kirsty

A new service supporting adults with learning disabilities has been established in Wiltshire. Creating more than 40 new jobs, the service sits within the heart of the community enabling people to remain close to home and their families.  

Leading adult social care and support provider, National Care Group, has developed the new service in close partnership with Wiltshire County Council. Having recognised a gap in services within the region, Palmarium ensures there is a dedicated infrastructure for specialist support, ensuring supported adults are not placed out of county. 

The new service in Calne consists of seven self-contained flats providing an environment capable of meeting a variety of needs, ensuring choice and control with the least restrictive approach, and supporting people to achieve their full potential. 

As well as the flats, more than 40 new jobs have been created in the local area, from support worker up to management level roles.  

Belinda Robinson, director of development at National Care Group said: “We’re proud to have worked alongside Wiltshire County Council to deliver this exciting new service. 

“Palmarium is an important addition to our portfolio and demonstrates our continuing commitment to enabling people to gain greater choice and control. The service provides a critical step in our progression model within Wiltshire, and builds upon our previous developments in the county, ensuring we can provide the most appropriate accommodation and support for each stage of a person’s life.” 

Building on best practices and the expectations of commissioners, regulators, and the people supported, Palmarium provides a ‘capable environment’ in which National Care Group can provide specialist support to meet the most complex of needs.  

Mike Ranson, commercial director at National Care Group said: “At the heart of this service is enabling local people to remain in the Wiltshire area, receiving the specialist support they require to achieve their full potential and become an active and valued part of their local community. We are pleased to be investing in the local economy, welcoming more than 40 new colleagues to the National Care Group family. We look forward to building on the success within Wiltshire and expanding our progression model across the country.” 

The National Care Group is a leading adult social care provider, supporting around 1,250 people across more than 250 services in the UK.  For more information on the services it provides, visit https://nationalcaregroup.com/.
