Welcome to Linkability

Linkability is a registered Charity with its registered office in Chorley, Lancashire. Linkability will assist people with learning difficulties get homes, care and support. In November 2009 it established a branch office in Heywood, developing existing and new services for RMBC.

In early 2016 we were really pleased to start working with West Lancs Positive Living.  Now WLPL are called Linkability and we run their services from Malthouse Business Centre in Ormskirk, working alongside the staff and people who are supported, their families, and local professionals.

Linkability is committed to providing the very best care or personal support required in order to meet the needs of people using its services it achieves this by making sure staff are well trained to the specific needs of the people concerned.

When someone comes to us requesting our help, we listen to the views of the person needing that help, the views of the people who know them well and views of the people who care for them most. Collectively we produce a ‘person centred’ plan for care and support.
