Individual Outreach Support

What support do we offer? 

We support people with learning disabilities, autistic people, and people with other hidden disabilities, some of these people may also have physical disabilities or require mental health support. Some people we support have complex needs and require support for multiple aspects of their care.

We offer support in the community and at home for 4 or more hours a week. We are CQC registered which means that this can include personal care and support with medication. The people we support are adults and young people aged 11+. All our staff are DBS checked, experienced, fully trained, and carefully matched to meet individual needs.



What can you do with your support? 

We are a member-led charity and always try to build skills that promote independence. We support our members to do a variety of activities. Below are just a few activities our members are regularly supported with.

Paying for support

If you have been assessed for 1-1 support then it is likely Adult Social Care or Children’s Services will pay for the support. However, they will assess you for a financial contribution towards this which will be different depending on your circumstances. This will be communicated with you by Leeds City Council. 

Some people pay via direct payments using a personal budget and others may pay privately.
