We provide a range of services for disabled children, young people and adults including support in the home with personal care, 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.

Hertfordshire 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.

Hertfordshire 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.

Ashurst Supported Living

Ashurst is an adapted and refurbished five-bedroom bungalow for young disabled people, set on a large spacious plot close to Hitchin town centre in Hertfordshire. The location of this supported living home enables people to access the town without the need to be driven by car or bus.

You can live the independent life you choose while renting accessible accommodation that’s specially designed for disabled people through a tenancy agreement with us.

Hillingdon Befriending

Do you want to try something new either inside or outside of your home? Do you want someone to talk to about the good things in your life and where you may need some help and support? 

We offer support for disabled adults in the local community. We can help you to plan the things you want to do: a holiday, a meeting with a social worker, to go somewhere new, listen to you and help you solve problems and help you to take care of your house or flat.

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