Services: Learning Disability Supported Living

Our Supported living offers an alternative to residential care and empowers individuals to choose the right amount of support - how and when they need it - so they can lead an enriching and fulfilling life.

Our supported living is based on positive outcomes and 20 years of experience in supporting individuals with Learning Disabilities, developing environments that focus on promoting and encouraging the people we support to live the life they choose to live.

The type of support individuals receive is controlled by them and with the support delivered by our highly trained support staff.   A personalised support plan will be developed based on an individual’s interests, priorities and skills. We support with personal care needs, managing finances, to finding education, work or leisure activities.

This can be in a variety of settings dependent on a person’s needs, circumstances and goals but they could include any of the following:

  • Independent living – Individuals can choose to live independently in their own home with as much or as little support as they need.
  • Shared living – We support individuals who might want to live independently too but aren't yet ready to live alone. Individuals have their own space but benefit from socialising with other like-minded people, sharing the communal spaces and sharing the costs of household bills.
