Our approach to support
Our aim is to support adults with learning difficulties and mental health issues to live the lives they want, either in their own homes, or in the community. We can support individuals through our robust assessments to stay in their own home. Our support packages are identified around the support an individual needs, whilst our focus is on enabling people to achieve their goals and to become more independent, providing the opportunities they deserve.
The service offers specialist support to empower and encourage individuals to develop their self-esteem and the skills they need. All residents have a very active social life with or without support from staff and some individuals are employed.
‘It’s good living here and being supported.’
