Local authorities and professionals

Cintre provides person centred solutions that are adaptable to suit your funding package and the client's requirements.

We work closely and have a 40 year old relationship with the local authorities, other charities, regulators and social care professionals. This bond allows us to provide solutions that are person centred and well suited to the funding package. We understand your professional needs and the importance of adaption to meet standards.

We at Cintre know that commissioners and health care professionals are sometimes faced with the challenge of where to place someone because of pressure upon the public funding. We are proud at Cintre to admit we are financially strong and that we continually meet all the delivery standards assessed by the CQC and local authority audit teams. The recent CQC inspections for Cintre's support services have all achieved an overall rating of ‘Good’ and we now feature on their website.

We work with adults aged 18 to 65 in residential and community settings, who have behaviours and conditions which challenge their day to day life.  All our staff have expertise in a range of conditions such as autism, challenging behaviours, ADHD, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and mild to moderate learning difficulties. Often the people we support have a mix of these conditions with complex and demanding needs. 

Our community based service offers support to those with a little more independence than those who seek residential support. We have two residential locations each with a differing style and strength of personality.

We believe each individual can achieve their goals, take new steps towards independence, and overcome challenges with the right support. Cintre is dedicated in providing safe, secure, co-operative possibilities.

We welcome all regional enquiries, and the residential services are open to all. There are no geographical restrictions in terms of where service users come from, provided that they wish to come to Cintre and that it is in their best interests to do so. At current we only offer community based support in the South West.

The charity’s care services are provided free to all service users.

If you are a brokerage team, social worker or commissioner you can contact us by email: enquiries@cintre.org, telephone: 0117 923 7129, or post: Cintre Head Office, 2nd Floor, Shore House, 68 Westbury Hill, Westbury on Trym, Bristol BS9 3AA. We offer free initial assessments to identify the individuals needs and how best to support them.
