INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT

Support 2

Our support

We provide individual support to people so that they can enjoy activities of their choice. This might be keeping in touch with friends, attending a class, going shopping – it’s all about people living their lives as they choose.

Some people have an interest, such as gardening or art, and we are happy to try and find opportunities for them to do this.

Some people join our own groups or courses, and this is a great way to meet other people and try new things. There is lots to choose from: cooking, drumming, walking, women’s group, sports… and we keep developing new groups based on people’s interests. More information can be found in the booklet we supply Support leaflet 2015

Our mission is enablement and empowerment. Some members do have personal care needs and we are currently registering with CQC in order to extend the services we offer where appropriate.

How we work

Most important is that we emphasise being person centred and innovate, impact is key. We conduct regular reviews with everyone who uses this service to enable people to develop and deal with complexity. More information is in our  individual-support-information-for-partners

People we support

Our members mainly have learning disabilities but there are also some who are on the autistic spectrum, or have mental health or other complex needs. Our experience spans working with adults and young people from 11+ at high school, particularly as they approach the transition into adulthood.
