We have a dedicated Stepping Stones unit which encourages interaction from those with learning difficulties and also mental health issues. The interaction includes arts and crafts, poetry, story telling and other interactive activities.
Therapeutic community plus ‘TC+’ operates within the same framework and model of mainstream Democratic Therapeutic Communities (DTCs) in prisons; however the approach is contextualised to support offenders with Learning Disability (LD) in accessing the TC process and functions. TC+ provides a specialist intervention for prisoners with learning disabilities to address offence related risk and associated personality and psychological disorders. They deliver a core treatment model suitable for sentenced offenders with a wide range of offending needs including sexual, violent and indeterminate prisoners whose complex needs cannot be adequately met by a single intervention.
