What we do
Our charity is all about the people that we support. Whether we are providing care and support in partnership with local authorities or supporting people via the Direct Payment system, it is the individual that determines what kind of support we provide.
We work across nine London Boroughs and provide support to People with Learning Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Conditions, Older People, Young people in need of housing support and people with Mental Health Issues.
Supported Living services
Our supported living services provide a genuine alternative to residential care for people who want to live more independently. We provide support from a few hours per week up to twenty four hours per day.
Our supported living services operate across London and provide flexible support for people with mild, moderate and profound learning disabilities, mental health issues and Autism Spectrum Conditions. We build support around each person to specifically address their needs and include volunteers to enable them to participate in the communities in which they live.
Our Outreach services have an excellent reputation, not only do they provide support when and where it is needed they also actively work with people to prevent social isolation.
Our Outreach Services support people with learning disabilities and people with mental health issues. The service is completely flexible. Some people use the service to get support to do specific things such as attending appointments or pursuing activities, others benefit from longer term, or ongoing packages of support. Our flexible, friendly and dedicated team provide an excellent service across London when and where it is needed, for as long as it is needed.
Floating Support services - Older People
Our team provide one-to-one home support to enable people over the age of 55 to continue to live independently. The service is free at the point of use and is funded by the local authority in The London Boroughs of Hackney and Redbridge.
The service is all about supporting people to stay independent and continue living in their homes. We provide practical advice and support on a range of issues from settling disputes with neighbours, to accessing the right benefits or staying active and healthy.
