We provide a range of services for disabled children, young people and adults including support in the home with personal care and daily tasks and support to access activities in the community such as shopping, meeting friends, attending leisure activities, medical appointments or college.
We can support children, young people and adults with any impairment or condition. These include dysphagia, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, autism, physical impairments and learning difficulties. We also support disabled people with clinical needs such as tracheostomy, gastrostomy, suction, oxygen and medication administration.
East Midlands Support Away from Home
We offer support for disabled children, young people and adults to access their community. For activities, we can support disabled children and young people and adults to take part in local activities that they enjoy doing.
For disabled children and young people, this can be activities such as Scouts or Guides, after school clubs, meeting up with friends, creative arts, drama and music, sports and fitness, shopping and going to the cinema.
For adults, this can be activities such as going shopping, meeting friends, sports and fitness, travelling to college and going to the pub, cinema, theatre, concerts or a football match.
East Midlands Home Care
We offer support for disabled children, young people and adults for personal care at home, 24 hours a day. Personal care at home is also known as domiciliary care, social care or home care. This means that we can support with getting ready for school, washing, dressing, taking medication, eating and any other personal support that they may need.
Shirley Lodge Supported Living
Shirley Lodge is a very welcoming supported living service available to disabled adults and is based in a three bedroomed, fully accessible bungalow in a quiet, leafy area of Nottingham. The service can be accessed by disabled people with any level of support need, including complex health needs. The bungalow is close to main transport routes into Nottingham.
Our staff can be there to support you in making day to day decisions, ensuring you are able to have the lifestyle you want, both inside and outside of the service. Staff will work closely with customers, families and commissioners to ensure there is a person-centred approach and a planned and safe transition into the service.
Day Service Opportunities
Most things in life are more fun with a group of like-minded friends.
Your disabled child can join in the fun with other young people at our activity club. At our clubs, children and young people plan what they want to, with our trained, friendly staff and volunteers – who are happy to try something new.
We give disabled adults the opportunity to try a full range of indoor and outdoor leisure and social activities. You’ll gain confidence, independence and learn new things.
There’s plenty to get involved in, such as sports, creative arts and drama, using computers and trips outdoors, for example, to the cinema, theatre or a football match.
The Vines Residential Short Breaks
Everyone needs some time off once in a while. Disabled people can take a short break, also known as respite care, at our residential home, The Vines, while carers take some time off. Our residential homes are fully accessible, well-equipped and provide a range of activities. Individuals can socialise with others, enjoy trips out or simply relax.
Our residential short breaks are for disabled adults with any condition or impairment. Book us for an overnight, weekend stay or a longer break – we’re very flexible.
We will talk with you – and others in your life who you want us to – to find out what’s important and how you like to be supported. Together, we’ll develop a support plan around the things you want to do, with a focus on what you’d like to achieve.
Your support staff
We’ll find support staff who you like and who you’ll get on with. Supporting families with disabled children and adults for over 60 years, we know just how much selecting friendly and caring staff matters. We train our staff thoroughly to provide safe and quality support.
You can pay using your direct payments, personal budgets, private income or through the local authority.
