Everyone should feel valued and have a sense that they belong in their community. Individuals are supported to explore opportunities to connect with others who have shared interests. People are encouraged to contribute to their communities, learn new skills and try new experiences that enables greater independence.
For people who have greater independence and a lower level of support needs, we match staff with similar interests to help them achieve their goals, maintain their independence and grow in confidence. For others who require greater support, we build community connections and engage in activities that appeal to and stimulate the senses.
People can be supported in their own homes, at a day service or educational venue, within a supported living context or a residential setting. Support is always personalised and varies hugely, with no two days being the same. Our support staff are complemented by Real Life Volunteers, who offer their time to enhance the support received and are fully trained, vetted and committed to helping people to live a full and meaningful life.
