Without the right backing, autistic adults can find it difficult to live in their own homes. We help adults to enjoy independent lives, either living on their own, with others, or in shared homes. Our trained staff provide a flexible amount of support for everyday tasks, or for people with more complex needs, we can deliver a comprehensive care package with up to 24-hour support.

The support we offer

We offer this service to people living in their own homes or in shared housing. We can bring structure, and help people to learn the essentials of daily life such as self care, laundry, cooking and budgeting.

Our staff help people to make the most of the wide range of leisure and community facilities available locally, building each person's confidence so that they can increase their abilities and selfsufficiency in all areas of their lives. Where appropriate we also help people to take part in further education and employment.

The staff assisted me to do an art exhibition at a local museum and I got some commissions for work.

Person we support

Each person we support in their home develops their own timetable of activities. We encourage them to pursue evening and leisure interests and to use local community facilities, and we give them the support they need to do this. People who live in our supported living service grow in confidence, develop the ability to integrate socially and enjoy enhanced skills and independence in all areas of their lives.

Person-centred approach

No two people are alike, and nor is the help we provide. We tailor each package to the person's needs, working closely with them to find out what will help them. Our experienced key workers support and guide each person. They encourage them to develop skills that will help them to live independently and to take part in and belong to their community. We hold review meetings whenever they are needed and encourage the people using our service, and anyone involved with their well-being, to attend these as well as the person-centred planning meetings.

How to access our support

Support in your home can be paid for through a number of funding streams. Visit our benefits and care page for more information.
