Model of approach
The model of approach is a fundamental framework designed to guide and shape our practice to support service users most effectively and to achieve each concept. It is in place to provide staff with a proven and analysed approach that has been put into practice. During this time it has evolved and has been frequently reviewed and adjusted to ensure it continues to support service users and staff in every possible way. It provides staff with the appropriate tools required to build foundations that are needed to be successful and key principles that are essential for enabling to be truly beneficial for all parties involved. This approach is not intended to restrict or prevent staffs practice but rather supply them with an approach that is the foundation and face of Brighter enabling.
Building healthy and positive relationships
It is imperative that healthy and positive relationships are developed and established in order for children and adults to flourish and thrive and to have the most meaningful and successful experience. It is well documented that without having a positive relationship, enabling won’t be fun or effective for either party. We take great care and pride in matching enablers with service users that have similar interests and skill sets so common ground can be identified. Building trust is crucial for the service user to feel safe, comfortable and relaxed which can be developed by staff being open with their overall communication, being positive and consistent with their approach.
Developing relationships with support networks
It is fundamental that professional relationships are formed and
developed with the service users circle of support and with other
professionals. It is important that frequent contact is facilitated so
that everyone is on the same page and working towards the same
We are very outcome orientated and believe with the correct tailored support, service users can make progress and achieve what they have set for themselves. The main objective is to support the individual to increase and build self-esteem and confidence in order to develop and grow. We work in a very individualised way with taking pictures and videos so that the progress that is being made is presented in a way that is meaningful, appealing and fun.
Equip and enrich
We work in ways that makes sense to the service user to ensure we are equipping each individual with the skills they need to break down any obstacles. It is highly valued that we play a significant role in laying the foundations for the service user to learn and grow.
Positive experiences and fun
Whilst we are always focused on working towards outcomes and personal growth and development, it remains fundamental to us that we ensure that service users are still having fun and enjoying their sessions. Enabling should always be a positive experience that the individual looks forward to and is meaningful to them.
