Care and Support
We work with individuals and families to agree what sort of support best meets their needs.
This could be providing specialist accommodation on a full time basis for people with more complex needs, to just a few hours befriending a week to help an individual build confidence and make friends. We support individuals of all ages, ranging from after school care for children with disabilities, to day care support for older people with dementia.
