Welcome to Bethphage

Bethphage is a registered charity (No. 1046225) which was established in 1994. We provide a range of care and support services for more than 100 adults with learning disabilities, autism and mental health needs across Shropshire, Birmingham, Telford, Walsall and Wolverhampton.

With a workforce in excess of 350 people, our services include registered care for people with complex and forensic needs, registered care in a specialist assessment and transition service, a range of supported living services, outreach services and day opportunities, which enable people to have meaningful and varied activities in a range of environments. Everything we do is focused on the individual, using person centred approaches, enabling the person to develop their potential, whilst meeting their hopes, dreams and aspirations. The people we support may live alone, share their accommodation with other people or live with their family. Support we provide in people’s homes, may range from a few hours a week to 24 hours a day.

Our day opportunities include a working farm in South Shropshire, with capacity for up to 30 people to work at the farm, growing and harvesting produce for sale and making jams, chutneys and gathering eggs to sell to the public. In Bridgnorth, the service provides a range of opportunities, including crafts, computers, opportunities to develop numeracy and literacy through meaningful sessions, music and cooking. In Ellesmere, we provides services for a small group of people with learning disabilities, a small group for older people and the building also houses the local library, which is a great addition to the service, providing opportunities for people to work in the library, interacting with the public and developing work skills as well as lending books, DVDs etc.


We aspire to being the best we can and we decided to work towards becoming a Positive Behaviour Organisation (PBO) and continue to strive towards this. Using the concepts and values of positive behaviour support, we apply them with the people we support and across the workforce, encouraging staff to interact and work effectively with each other. We believe that by becoming a positive behaviour organisation, we will make a difference to the people who use our services, as they benefit from staff who approach issues in a positive way. Ultimately, we believe this approach will make Bethphage a better place to work.

We have a specialist in-house team providing professional expertise in positive behaviour support (PBS) 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, through our person centred approaches to service delivery and through our focus on PBO.

Between October 2018 and July 2019, our three registered office locations and both registered homes have been undergoing their CQC inspections. The final report, from the July inspection, arrived today. The really good news is that we have retained our rating of ‘Good’ everywhere, whilst we are really pleased to retain ‘Good’ across Bethphage, in our view, we are very close to Outstanding in some areas of the support we are delivering.

The board of trustees and management team are delighted with the overall outcome. This impressive result is recognition of the hard work, dedication and excellent support that our staff teams across Shropshire, Telford, Walsall, Wolverhampton and Birmingham deliver every day to some of the most vulnerable in society.

Across all of the reports, we have received positive feedback from people we support, families and our staff. A big thank you to everyone in Bethphage for everything you do, for going that extra mile and making a difference to the people you support, having compassion, kindness, empathy and patience to support people to develop skills, grow and take their place in their community.

As we start the next phase of development in preparation for our inspections in two years’ time, we are aiming for Outstanding in one or more of the KLOE (CQC Key Lines of Enquiry) domains of: Safe, Caring, Responsive, Effective and Well Led. We know that we can’t achieve Outstanding without our support staff delivering excellent support and the whole organisation supporting them to enable this this to happen. In our 25th year we should take great pride in what we have achieved to date and set ourselves the challenge to become even better in the coming years. Let’s do this together!

  • The home had a positive and welcoming atmosphere where staff put people at the heart of the service.

  •  …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.

  • I like them all and we have a laugh. We saw that staff treated people with kindness and were responsive to their needs.

    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.

  • People had positive and caring relationships with staff who supported them. Staff spoke about the people they supported with warmth, respect and kindness.

    We saw people being supported by staff in a way that was kind, respectful and caring. One person said, “staff are really kind to me an help me in a way that makes me feel good about myself.”

    The Hollies - CQC inspection

  • 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
