Description

We can support you wherever you live. We can support you for as many hours as you need within your own home, in one of our supported living accomodations, in one of our residential homes, or in the community. We will help you to meet your goals such as going to college, finding work, becoming self employed, looking after your money and paying bills, staying healthy, or accessing activities in your local community.

We are a voluntary sector organisation offering care and support services to people with learning disabilities and physical and/or sensory impairments via residential, supported living, respite, hydrotherapy, day and community services.

We accept direct payments and individual budgets and you can get in touch with us yourself or through your social worker, broker or advocate.

We also own and operate a hydro pool offering hydrotherapy and other complementary treatments for a wide range of child and adult groups.

We have a meeting room / conference space set in the tranquil surroundings of Leigh Woods available for hire.
