Community care is about enabling you to be an active member of your community. It’s about supporting you to continue with the activities you love, or to engage with something new.
We normally provide community based support on an hourly basis. This support can be 1:1 or as part of a group. Our groups are very popular and they’re a great way to grow your social circle, but there’s never any pressure to join a group and if you’d prefer to be supported in the community on a 1:1 basis, we will be very happy to facilitate you. Quite often people mix their support between 1:1 and group activities depending on how they’re feeling, and which groups they want to take part in. And of course we’re very keen to support you with your existing hobbies and interests, so if you’d like to attend a group organised by someone else and you want us to come along with you, we can definitely arrange this.
Our group activities take place under the banner of The Enable Project, which is a groundbreaking initiative that promotes real inclusion for people with learning disabilities, Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), physical disabilities and mental health conditions. We provide safe and friendly support to people of all ages, as participants take part in daily activities to develop their skills and confidence during the transition from youth to adulthood, and beyond.
