  • Offer supported work experience relevant to service users’ capabilities
  • Enable service users to access a range of social and leisure activities and try out new hobbies alongside their peers

Flexible support for adults

These are tailored packages of 1:1 support for individual adult service users and can be provided in their own homes, at our centre or in the community. For those with challenging behaviours, we can provide 2:1 support. Typically, service users receiving this person-centred support might receive assistance with:
• Personal care such as bathing and dressing
• The safe administration of their medication
• Household tasks including preparing and cooking a meal
• Personal shopping and paying bills
• Budgeting and managing money
• Accessing healthcare such as GP, dental and hospital appointments
• Attending social and leisure activities, work experience placements and courses
