At Real Life Options our focus is providing personalised support that is right for every individual. As part of our approach, we spend time getting to know every person including their likes, dislikes, preferences and aspirations, health and welfare needs in order to understand their story and how we can best support their needs.
Through relaxed meet and greet sessions, we’ll work directly with people and ideally their families and existing support network or health and social care professionals to get to know each other better.
By agreeing real outcomes together, we focus on developing the strengths and capabilities of the people we support and enabling them to achieve their personal ambitions. Our individualised approach results in more choice, greater control and improved independence. Our experienced support teams respect people’s choices and are committed to helping them become a reality.
“I like how my staff have known me for a long time and know how I like to be supported. I like to be encouraged to live independently."

"I enjoy my volunteering experience as it gives me a sense of enjoyment working with the people we support and other Real Life Options staff. It’s great to see people enjoy their time at the Centre and leave happy at the end of the day."
