In this section you’ll find our factsheets, written specifically for friends and family of people we support. These are written in a clear and simple way, designed to help you make decisions about your loved one’s support.

How we match the right staff to your relative, involving them and their families in the process.
Managing staff performance
We take staff performance very seriously. Every year each member of staff has a performance review – from the Executive Team through to the support workers and office staff.
When things go wrong
There are times when, as relatives, you know when something is wrong and will want to get it sorted straight away. At Discovery we will make it our priority to work with you to resolve the issue, as quickly as possible. Find out how to raise issues or concerns.
Food and nutrition
We aim to strike the right balance between what the people we support want to eat and what will keep them healthy. Find out how we support people to eat healthy and nutritious food that they enjoy.
We respect and support the culture, faith and values of every person we support, their families and our staff. Find out more about our perspectives on equality and diversity.
