TLC Care and Support is led by Paul Hainsworth, who became Chief Executive in 2018 with a passion to expand the company’s strengths and further develop the business.
TLC was founded in 1996 by Pauline Hennessey who was disillusioned by the care and support that her sister Janet, who had learning disabilities, had been receiving elsewhere.
Although Janet sadly died just before the business opened its doors, TLC has gone from strength to strength, providing much-needed first-class care and support to many people over the years.
The company was sold in 2008 to Glen Harms and Ralph Charles, gradually increasing in size as new opportunities arose.
Since becoming Chief Executive, Paul has worked closely with the Management Team to further develop training and career opportunities, to attract caring and motivated staff who have the best interests of people supported by TLC at heart.
TLC supports people with a range of needs and our person-centred approach means we listen to every individual about how they would like to spend their time, giving them the choice about what they would like to do with their lives.
This enables us to develop a support plan which focuses on helping them become more independent, by maximising opportunities, minimising the amount of intervention required with challenging behaviour and teaching coping strategies.
We work in close partnership with family members as well as other organisations and agencies, to ensure that every individual can reach their full potential and live meaningful, fulfilling and happy lives.

Can you give some TLC?
Are you a caring individual who’d love to support adults with learning disabilities, mental health issues and complex needs?
I can tell you in my son’s case, you are doing a superb job, especially for this last year.
Listening to the people who are close to the service user made a lot of difference. When something is not right, they will sense it better than anyone else. That is what made the difference in my son’s case.
