For parents and family members

As a parent or family member of someone with a disability, you may be concerned about the future and what happens next for your family member.

Transitions into adulthood - Moving into adult life can be a challenging time for anyone! You’ll face big decisions – from job and career decisions, through to where to live and who will offer the appropriate support. Your current support package may also alter as your child moves into adulthood, as their priorities and needs will also change.

To make this transition a positive one, we offer you support and information to help you decide what's right. We offer a flexible range of support services, both at home and within the community, providing people with a tailored package of support based on their specific needs, wants and aspirations. The best interests of the people we support remain at the heart of everything we do - their lives do not stand still, so neither does the support we offer them

Changing current arrangements – It is important to plan ahead for the future. If you are considering the options for care in the future, you will find it helpful to talk to people who know you and your current situation well – for example, your social worker, GP or other healthcare professionals – and discuss what some of the options may be.  We are also happy to discuss this with you and offer impartial advice and suggestions on things you might like to consider and how we can help.

For Commissioners

As an established service provider, we have years of expertise to draw on in working innovatively, flexibly and in partnership with commissioners. Our approach is to provide person-centred solutions - at the right time, in the right place and of the highest quality.

The services we currently provide are listed in our Service Directory on this site, and we welcome discussion about areas where we don't currently provide services, but where you might be interested in seeing us.

Areas of Expertise

We treat the people we support as individuals rather than label them by their conditions but know that sometimes 'labels' help start the process of matching people and potential placements. Our experience includes (but is not limited to) supporting individuals with:

  • profound and multiple learning disability
  • mild-moderate learning disability
  • complex or multiple support needs
  • specific learning disabilities
  • autistic spectrum disorders
  • physical disabilities
  • dementia and conditions arising from ageing
  • behaviours which challenge
  • sensory impairments

Costs and Fees

The charge we make for our support is bespoke; individual fees work with individual service fund arrangements, whether these are through personal budgets, direct payments or managed funds. Providing the right support at the right time promotes independence for the individual and allows us to use scarce resources more efficiently in the longer term.
