The website is a collaboration between Dimensions, H S A and The Learning Community for Person Centred Practices. We are also grateful to Inclusion Press for sharing tools in the Community Connections section.
Dimensions is a national provider of a wide range of services for people who experience autism and people with learning disabilities. A not-for-profit organisation, we are a leader in our sector, supporting over 2,300 people and their families throughout England and South Wales.
We provide individualised support for people living in their own homes or in shared housing, transition support for young people leaving school or college, and opportunities for learning, employment and participating in the community.
The quality of our service is underpinned by a team of exceptional, well-trained staff, supported by a team of experts, and a commitment to person-centred support. Our aim is to enable the people we support to live a full life, and make their own choices and decisions.
We have been working in partnership with Helen Sanderson Associates to become a person centred organisation. As part of this, Helen and Dimensions described what they have tried and learned in the book ‘Making in Personal – a provider’s journey from tradition to transformation’ .

The Learning Community for Person Centred Practices
The Learning Community for Person Centered Practices is an international community that shares knowledge about supporting people in getting the lives they want. Our focus is on developing and disseminating practical tools that help people in having positive control in their lives. We do this by supporting those who use the tools and those who train others to use them. We continue to remember and honor those who are our teachers - people who use services and their families.
