How it works
Working with each customer we develop a tailored support plan, with daily/weekly meetings and assessments. The team work with customers to identify support needs, identify education, and training & employment opportunities and offer support with wider life skills such as Shopping on a Budget sessions, parenting, maintaining accommodation cleanliness and personal hygiene.
Customers will have your own support worker who will meet with them as required for support meetings tailor made to their needs.
There is a regular programme of social activities to develop customer involvement and build self-esteem such as healthy eating sessions, confidence & resilience and sexual health.
