Why Choose Us?
Real Life Options is a registered charity that supports over 1,500 people with learning disabilities and autism across the UK to have more choice and greater control over their lives. Our wealth of experience in providing individualised support packages including supported living models, outreach, residential care homes and respite breaks continues to grow year on year.
By working in partnership with individuals, their support networks and with sector-leading bodies, we seek innovative ways to ensure that the people we support have more choice and a real voice in how they live their lives. Through regular consultation and valuable feedback, we continually review and adapt our service provision, putting the people we support at the very heart of what we do.
“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."
