The Richardson Partnership for Care was established in 1989 to provide a safe, stable home for young adults with learning disabilities. Since then it has grown to an organisation with six residential care homes, accommodating up to 78 adults and employing 154 staff.
When we realised that there was insufficient specialist residential care for adults with acquired brain injury in Northamptonshire, we used our expertise to develop this too. We are now well respected for looking after adults with learning disabilities and those with acquired brain injuries, and enabling service users with complex needs and challenging behaviour to live happy and fulfilling lives.
In 2020, the organisation rebranded to become Richardson Care.
Richardson Care is one of the few providers that remain independently owned and run, which means that we are not under pressure from shareholders to realise short-term financial gains at the expense of long-term sustainability. We provide a home for life for some of our service users and we take that responsibility very seriously.
Acquired brain injuries and multiple and profound learning disabilities are complex and challenging conditions. Our experience tells us that no two cases are the same – everyone is treated as an individual and the needs of the service users are at the heart of everything we do. We believe that our continued success has been due to our commitment to our values.
