Your support, your way
What would make a difference to you? Together we’ll make it happen so you can live the life you choose.
Read more on how we work with you.

We provide a range of services for disabled adults including support in the home with personal care and daily tasks, support to access activities in the community such as shopping, meeting friends, attending leisure activities or medical appointments.

We support disabled adults with any impairment, sometimes known as special needs. These include dysphagia, epilepsy, enteral meal support, cerebral palsy, autism, physical impairments, and learning and communication difficulties. 

Sharon Collins Day Opportunities

Most things in life are more fun with a group of like-minded friends.

We give disabled adults the opportunity to try a full range of indoor and outdoor leisure and social activities, while building networks and friendships with other disabled adults in the area.

Sharon Collins Resource Centre is fully accessible; decide what you’d like to do and our staff will support you to make it happen. The types of activities you might try are:

  • creative art
  • music
  • drama
  • story telling
  • dance
  • shadow puppetry
  • sensory cookery
  • sensory relaxation
  • sensory group activities.

East Sussex Support Away from Home

We offer support for disabled adults in the local community. Do you want to try something new outside your home, see friends or relatives? With us you can do the things you enjoy, such as:

  • going shopping
  • meeting friends
  • sports and fitness
  • travelling to college
  • going to the pub, cinema, theatre, concerts or a football match
  • attending drama club.

Through our flexible support you’ll gain new skills, confidence and independence. It’s your choice what you’ll do.

East Sussex Home care

We offer personal care at home which is also known as domiciliary care, social care or home care. We can support you with tasks like washing, dressing, taking medication and preparing meals.

Getting started

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 by using your direct payments, personal health budget, personal budgets, private income or through the local authority.

Book us for an hour or two as needed, or at a regular time that suits your family.
