Our Supported Living services provide high-quality supportive environments for people with learning disabilities, autism and associated needs, in the heart of local communities. Support is tailored to meet the individual needs of each person. We can offer a choice of different options for the type of support required. We work with Registered Social Landlords and private landlords to identify suitable accommodation in good locations. We can support individuals in their own homes to develop independence and achieve their full potential.
We have a number of dedicated purpose-built services which offer individuals secure tenancy via housing association, separate to agreed care support. The aim of our Supported Living services is to support people to move from hospital, residential care or family homes to live in their own homes, maximise their independence and live full and engaging lives in their community. Here they are supported to live safely at home with prompting and support from our staff to manage their own personal care, physical and mental health needs, domestic tasks, budgeting, meal planning and preparation and medication.
Our teams not only provide day-to-day support with daily living skills and community engagement, they also provide encouragement and motivation, reassurance and emotional support. Our staff are trained in Positive Behaviour Support which is used consistently to help people learn different ways of expressing themselves, in doing so it helps them to manage their behaviour and reduce their anxieties.
We have a key focus on skills development and people are encouraged and supported to attend college or undertake voluntary work.
We ensure that they’re valued as a citizen and their wishes and feelings are heard. We give them choice and control with the use of the National Citizen Advocacy Network, a suitably skilled Independent Visitor and the Disability Rights Commission.
This encourages them to maximize their opportunities for lifelong learning potential and develop as many independence skills and reduce risk as far as possible.
