The Aspire team is currently made up of approximately 300 support workers and 80 casual staff. We have a highly trained workforce, we provide training through our own in-house quality development team. This team provides specialist support in the areas of dementia, autism spectrum disorder including Asperger’s, total communication moving and handling and also person-centred approaches. This training is also provided by Aspire to other care providers across the North West.
We also host a research and development unit currently undertaking research in partnership with the University of Salford and Manchester Metropolitan University. The research is based around aspects of dementia and the positive effects of physiotherapy and occupational therapy. Our research is grounded in action learning and timely implementation of research results – enabling us to respond to customer need. We can develop and change services swiftly, gain feedback immediately and truly provide the support people want and require.
