Bethphage is a registered charity (No. 1046225) which was established in 1994 and provides support to adults with disabilities or mental health needs 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. Most of the people we support have a learning disability. 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. 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.
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

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.”

- 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.

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.
