When somebody is unwell in the community, whether living in their own home, with their parents or being supported by a care provider, finding the right support at the right time can be challenging.

For people with a learning disability, autistic people, or people with mental ill-health, it can often be the case that the care and treatment require a hospital stay.
Through intensive research and patient stories, we are learning as a society that these environments are often detrimental to people’s well-being.
The average inpatient stay for somebody with a learning disability and/or autism is over 5 years. This is unacceptable and does not provide individuals with the care and quality of life they deserve.
Catalyst Care Group has developed a model that uses proactive strategies to keep people in their own communities, removing the need for last-resort detention under the Mental Health Act to keep people safe.
Commissioners and Case Managers turn to Catalyst Care Group when:
The government developed the Transforming Care Agenda to address the issue of people being unnecessarily detained in hospital wards. To meet the NHS Long Term Plan targets and outcomes, we need to start focusing on admission avoidance and building community capacity to meet the needs of people in their own homes before it gets to the point of admission.
Together, we need to build capable environments with a long-term strategic focus. There is a significant correlation between mental health challenges for neurodiverse individuals and the increasing incidence of neurological differences, such as autism. The need for people to stay home in their own communities will always be there.
