Caring Choice - going that extra mile to provide a fun, educational, caring and safe environment.
The company was first formed in March 2010 after realising that the services available for adults with learning disabilities was limited and in particular, the type of services it afforded. A place that offered individuals the opportunity to interact with the community as well as being part of a learning environment was few and far between within the Medway area.
It became apparent within in the first couple of years that the services available for adults not only with learning disabilities but who also had challenging behaviour was virtually non existent. It was at this point that the company moved premises and opened up an additional unit specifically dealing with challenging behaviour. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength in the services it offers.
