About Radian Support
Your life, your choice, your way
Radian Support is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting adults in Southern and Central England with individual needs, such as learning disabilities, autism, mental health and other related needs, to lead fulfilling and independent lives.
Part of the larger Radian Group, we are large enough to offer value for money, but small enough to retain a personal and flexible service.
Quality is at the heart of our business and Radian Support has a reputation for high quality. All our activity is underpinned by a robust continuous improvement plan incorporating people's views. Our services offer peace of mind for individuals, commissioners, relatives, families and carers alike.
Renowned for its staff expertise and people focus, and with strong embedded values, Radian Support can deliver the most complex, individual support services.This is why Radian Support has 'preferred provider' status with many Social Services departments, and takes an active part in Support and Care strategy across the Southern and Central regions.

Jason Gregory, Head of Development and Performance
Jason joined us in May 2012 as Interim Regional Manager and is really excited about the opportunities to develop our services, particularly our care attendant schemes (CAS) and making our telecare offer an integral part of our care service.
His responsibilities include strategic leadership of our Hampshire services – CAS Petersfield, Portsmouth Supported Living, Lifelink and our new Winchester Extra Care Service, as well as CAS Berkshire.
A relatively recent convert to the social care world, Jason's background is mainly commercial beginning his working life as an investment banker and subsequently spending several years in retail operations for organisations such as Pizza Hut and JD Wetherspoons.
There came a point in his life when pizza – although very tasty - just wasn't enough so he joined Turning Point as Regional Manager for learning disabilities services and was Assistant Director for Substance Misuse and Young People's services.
Jason loves working in social care, and feels privileged to come to work and contribute to providing quality services for the people we support.

Driving Up Quality
Radian Support's self assessment
A Code of best practice has been developed by the Driving Up Quality Alliance as a way of care providers pledging a commitment to those people being supported. As a provider of care to people with learning disabilities, Radian Support have signed up to the Code and provided a self assessment.
About the DUQ Code self assessment
The Driving Up Quality (DUQ) Code sets out 5 key areas that make a good organisation:
- Support is focused on the person
- The person is supported to have an ordinary and meaningful life
- Care and support focuses on people being happy and having a good quality of life
- A good culture is important to the organisation
- Managers and board members lead and run the organisation well
We have completed the self assessment - you can view our report here. You can also check our progress so far.
We also have an Easy Read version of the report - click here to see it.
