This service

We offer support for disabled children and young people and adults to either access their community and 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.
  • Sreative arts, drama and music.
  • Sports and fitness.
  • Shopping.
  • Going to the cinema.
For adults:
  • 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. 

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 you’ll get on with.

Supporting disabled people for the past 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 with your direct payments, personal budget, private income or through the local authority.

Book us for an hour or two as you need, or at a regular time that suits you.
