The Jeesal Group was established over 30 years ago by Jeeva and Sally Subramaniam, who have dedicated their lives to providing person-centred care for people with intellectual disabilities. Their experience of working in and with the NHS and Social Services informed their philosophy of empowerment, equality and autonomy, which is the ethos behind their vision to provide support for people with learning disabilities, in a homely environment. These core values are the foundation upon which the Jeesal Group has grown to make a difference in this field.
Jeeva and Sally set up and ran the community based residential services in Norfolk, supporting some of the most vulnerable people in our society. What they found was that many of the people they supported were prone to long term hospital treatment and it was in 2010 that the Jeesal Group acquired Cawston Park with the aim of being able to provide clinical care and treatment and supporting people as quickly as possible back into the community.
Today the Jeesal Group supports people from across the country to build and lead better lives in the community, developing more community services in regions such as London with a supported living model approach in mind, as well as also developing outreach services with its range of care professionals.
The Jeesal Group also embraces the usage of technology within its care settings, with some services going completely paperless and using handheld devices to carry out everyday functions. The Jeesal Groups commitment to using more technology within its processes is based on the values of the organisation as technology allows the group to work collaboratively and transparently with all stakeholders, whilst also ensuring that the privacy rights of individuals are protected.
