Real Life Options supports thousands of people across the UK to live as independently as possible.
We provide support in a variety of settings and environments including independent living in people’s own homes, flats or bungalows, supervised complexes or in shared accommodation. Support may be shared or delivered on a one to one basis, depending on whether people live on their own or with other people. Where practical, we utilise assistive technologies within the home environment to aid accessibility, improve communication and support greater independence.
In addition to Supported Living services, Real Life Options supports people in residential care settings. We offer respite and short breaks for individuals whose families may need a helping hand in supporting their loved ones to live a healthy, safe and meaningful life. We also provide support in community environments where people have access to clubs, activities and facilities that meet their needs and interests and lead to greater choice and independence.
"I love working with my teams to identify how we can improve what we do to enrich the lives of the people we support. We have staff who are always willing to go that extra mile to ensure that we provide the best services possible."
Service Manager, Falkirk
“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."
Fay from Glasgow
"Good support plans mean people get good consistency of care and that is so important to people who need routine."
A staff member from Yorkshire
“My son is happy there; doing lots of activities; in his garden, playing football, working at the furniture project and at the moment someone is teaching him to fish. He has learned a whole host of new skills with Real Life Options.”
A relative of a person we support from Angus
“I like my staff who support me to live in my house.”
