Working in partnership
Dimensions actively welcomes partnerships that achieve innovative or improved practice.
These partnerships take many forms:
- collaborations and joint ventures – such as working with partners and influencers for #ImWithSam, our autism and learning disability hate crime campaign
- merging with other organisations – to draw new specialist skills into Dimensions, and to improve the efficiency with which both organisations operate
- working with academic research centres – such as our partnership with the Tizard Centre, to achieve practice leadership focussed on improving the way we support people
- offering the time of our specialists to sector wide innovations – such as the Positive Behaviour Support Coalition.
Some of our partners include:
- Challenging Behaviour Foundation
- University of Kent Tizard Centre
- National Development Team for Inclusion
- Helen Sanderson Associates
- Positive Behaviour Support Coalition
At a local level, we also have a huge number of less formal partnerships, all designed to offer more opportunity to the people we support.
