Support for schools

Enjoying a drumming lesson

Leaving school or college can be an uncertain time for someone with a learning disability and their family. FitzRoy can make this transition a positive one, offering you the right support and information to help a school leaver to decide what their next step is.

We offer flexible support, both in the home and in the community, for people who have learning disabilities who are leaving school or college. This is based on the individual’s specific needs and aspirations and comes in many different forms, including:

  • Support to live as independently as possible, through our registered care and supported living services.
  • Day and community services, which offer a safe place to meet up with friends as well as learn new skills such as cooking, IT, money management, sewing, art and drama. These centres also give people the support needed to access the local community.
  • General support for people in their local community. This could be through support with a volunteering role, or the help needed to go shopping, meet up with friends or go to college.
  • Sensory World - an educational and fun website for people with learning disabilities. Support workers often use the site to help with budgeting exercises, meal choices or health and safety around the home. To find out more about Sensory World, please visit our website.

For further information about the services we can offer your students and their families, please contact your nearest regional office via the contact us page.
