Welcome to Bethphage

Bethphage is a registered charity (No. 1046225) which was established in 1994 and provides support to adults with learning and physical disabilities in the Welsh Borders and West Midlands. We currently support people in Birmingham, Shropshire, Telford, Walsall and Wolverhampton.

Our services include registered care homes, supported living services, day opportunities, outreach support and a specialist assessment and transition service. Everything we do is individually designed to enable people to achieve their potential and meet their objectives and need for support. The people we support may live in their own home, a home they share with one or two other people, their family home or a small shared care home. The support may range from a few hours a week to 24 hours a day every day.

 

We aspire to be a positive behaviour organisation. Using the concepts and values of positive behaviour support, we apply them to how we manage and lead our staff and to how staff behave with each other. We believe that, by becoming a PBO, we will make a significant difference to the quality of life of the people who use our services and make Bethphage an even better place to work.

We have a specialist in-house team providing professional expertise in positive behaviour support which augments the skills of our highly trained workforce. Our vision is of a society where people with disabilities have the same opportunities to develop and use their talents and skills as all other people. We deliver this by implementing our core values of personal growth, honesty, respect and active involvement.

Exciting New Developments For Bethphage

Bethphage is delighted to announce that we are the preferred provide of three community services in Shropshire: Oak Farm in Ditton Priors, Innage Lane Day Services in Bridgnorth and The Meres Community Centre in Ellesmere. As the preferred provider we are looking forward to diversifying our areas of expertise and are currently negotiating with Shropshire Council over the transfer of these services from local authority management to the voluntary sector.
•Oak Farm is a well established working farm in the village of Ditton Priors, providing day opportunities for 44 adults with a learning disability. It is well integrated with the local community and is a supplier of farm produce, plants and preserves as well as providing opportunities for training and work experience in horticulture, agriculture and animal husbandry.
•Innage Lane is a day service for 21 adults with a learning disability in Bridgnorth. The building is a regular looking house close to Bridgnorth High Street and the staff team support people to undertake a wide range of activities in the Innage Lane property and the local community.
•The development of Meres Community Centre in Ellesmere will provide community resources alongside the provision of daytime opportunities for adults with learning disabilities, day care for older people, library services and customer services.

Bethphage are thrilled to be given this opportunity to extend our services to a broader range of people within the community and delivering our vision of a society where people with disabilities have the same opportunities as other people. Over the next few weeks, we will seek to put in place formal arrangements for transferring the staff under TUPE regulations, undertake due diligence on the business activities and involve the staff, people who use the services and friends in preparing plans for the ongoing development of these services.

Angela, a support worker in our West Midlands branch was honoured last Thursday at the inaugural Birmingham Care Awards. Angela and her colleague Harriet support two ladies who share a house together and are experiencing declining health as they age. Angela has supported these ladies for many years and uses her long term knowledge to ensure the very best care for the people she supports. The judges heard how Angela and Harriet's determination, drive and knowledge of the ladies they support ensured that one of the ladies received timely and appropriate treatment and care from the appropriate professionals even when initial consultations had failed to diagnose the main needs. We are very proud to count Angela among our staff and to see her recognised in this very public way alongside other excellent carers in Birmingham. ... See MoreSee Less

testimonials

  • Staff were keen to try new things to enhance the quality of people’s lives. We found the culture of the home to be open, positive and inclusive.

    I work with many care providers and I would set aside Bethphage as an excellent company for it's mission, vision and it's approach to care, that is consistent from management through to individual support workers. They have an ethos of independence and crucially an understanding of the organisations role to achieve this, that is clearly evident in the people who work at Bethphage. Importantly this is visible in the personalities of the people they support, who are happy, calm and safe. I would recommend this organisation to others and look forward to working in partnership with them again.

  • Staff treated people with compassion, kindness dignity and respect. We found the home had a culture where staff put people first and wanted them to be involved in what happened there. Relatives told us that staff were “marvellous” We saw that people were confident in the company of staff and looked comfortable and relaxed.

  • We at MAGG Group Ltd have been partners with Bethphage, for over 3 years now and have always found the staff to be very dedicated, committed and most importantly they care about the people they look after, their homes are well managed and the management team are very proactive with regards to the needs of the people and homes they manage and from our point of view specifically with regards to health and fire safety

  •  …They help me feel better about myself and always listen to me.

     People told us they believed the provider created a culture that was open and transparent.

     I feel valued by Bethphage and part of a team. Not just someone who is cared for.
