We offer support for disabled children and young people and adults to either access their community or 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.
For activities, we can support disabled children and young people and adults to take part in local activities that they enjoy doing. This can be activities such as:
For disabled children and young people:
- Scouts or Guides.
- After school clubs.
- Meeting up with friends.
- Creative arts, drama and music.
- Sports and fitness.
- Going to the cinema.
- Going shopping.
- Meeting friends.
- Sports and fitness.
- Travelling to college.
- Going to the pub, cinema, theatre, concerts or a football match.
Through our flexible support you’ll gain new skills, confidence and independence. It’s your choice what you’ll do.
Is it for you?
We support children and young people and adults with any impairment, sometimes known as special needs. These include dysphagia, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, autism, physical impairments and learning difficulties. We also give support with clinical needs such as tracheostomy, gastrostomy, suction, oxygen and medication administration.
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 for using your direct payments, 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.
