How does it work?
When an individual is referred to us, we will work with them to create a support plan that is tailored to their unique needs. We will talk with them about when they want to have their support and what they would like to achieve. Our staff work flexibly, and we will match the service user with an outreach worker who can support them with the activities that they want to get involved with.
Budgets and funding
If you or a family member have been assessed by your local authority as having an eligible need, you may be assessed for a personal budget. This is a pot of money that is separate from any benefits you may receive, and is allocated to fund your support. This way, you have more control because you can choose how to spend the money to achieve the things that are important to you.
Children and Young People
We offer one to one, two to one, and small group support for children and young people aged 4-25 years, supporting them to develop their interests and take part in leisure activities in the community. For those over the age of 11, we also offer weekends away in the UK.
Parents and carers can make direct referrals, or children can be referred by local authorities.
We support people to develop skills to manage their own homes and lives. Support is mainly provided on a one to one basis, but we also work with people who live with their family or a partner. We match people with outreach workers who are experienced in encouraging service users to develop their skills in managing their own home.
Community Support for Adults
We offer individually tailored support as an alternative to day services. We enable people to use their skills and talents, gain confidence, and enjoy life to the full. Support is mainly provided on a one to one basis but we also work with people in small groups as this enables friends to spend time with each other and do things together in the local community.
