Adults with Learning Disabilities

We provide accommodation with 24 hour support, to adults with learning disabilities to help them live semi-independently. We only place service users with similar needs in the same accommodation. Our accommodation houses 2 to 3 service users plus a support worker.

We work with our partner agencies and have regular meetings with them to ensure that each service user’s care plan is achieved. We provide a safe environment where each service user is free to express themselves. We treat each individual fairly and we not judge or discriminate against our service users.

We help equip each service user with necessary life skills they need. These include but are not limited to,

  • Attending community activities,
  • Job applications,
  • Interview skills,
  • CV writing,
  • Budgeting,
  • Household chores and all aspects of daily living,
  • Application for benefits,
  • Cooking and healthy eating amongst others.

We offer support to achieve a healthy balanced lifestyle, through leisure and health activities.

We also offer out of hours support where needed.

We offer support in managing and attending appointments in the community and with other professionals.

All our accommodation has some outdoor space and vegetable patches which our young people can use to learn gardening skills or use gardening as therapy.
