Community Support aims to provide people with learning disabilities with information and advice to lead independent lives through empowering people to make their own choices. Staff assist people to access and develop natural social networks within their community. Through co-produced actions plans, our aim is for individual’s to access their community with minimal or no support from staff by increasing an individual’s confidence and independence at a pace suited to them. Some of the areas we can support people with are:

  • Having a say in their community
  • Developing peoples daily living skills such as good neighbour skills or talking through any problems a person may have.
  • Claiming welfare benefits.
  • Financial budgeting.
  • Attending appointments.
  • Accessing education, training or work.
  • Joining community groups.
