Our outreach services are usually for people who live in their own homes and need support to remain independent.
Sometimes known as domiciliary care or floating support, community support provides flexible and tailored support for people with autism or learning disabilities.
We work together to design and deliver support that promotes greater independence, confidence and self-esteem. Community Support focusses on achieving positive outcomes for people who use our services.
Whether someone needs only a few hours each week, or an intensive period to work towards a specific objective, our experienced staff will support people to achieve their goals.
We use staff matching tools to identify the characteristics of the ideal support worker. People using our services are then involved in the shortlisting and interviewing of each person and decide who they would like to work with.
We believe that each person we support should have opportunities to learn new things and enjoy the activities they wish to do. Becoming part of the local community enables individuals to live an active and inclusive life.
We provide personalised support with:
- developing and maintaining life skills, such as food shopping, cooking and household chores
- help with finances and budgeting, and to maintain a tenancy
- healthy lifestyles such as food and nutrition planning, sporting activities and being in control of personal health
- voluntary or work placements
- travel training and using public transport independently
- social life and leisure activities such as attending clubs, organising trips and holidays
- meeting new people and making friends and relationships
- college activities and college work
- personal care and support with medication
As the people we support develop their skills, we adapt our services to meet their changing needs. We deliver ‘just enough support’ and will never ‘over support’ someone.
