Learning disabilities services
Accord has 20 years’ experience of providing learning disability services for adults and our services for older people, including our extra care services, have a long history of supporting older people with a learning disability.

- Supported living schemes
- Residential Care schemes
- Specialist residential services for customers who have behaviours that challenges services
