The Adult Support Service offers a high quality, flexible support service for disabled people. Our well trained staff offer 1:1 support in individuals own homes or the wider community. The service enables approximately 150 service users to live independently or access a wide range of social/leisure activities.
Aims and Objects
Our Aims and Objectives are to support adults in a way that recognises and promotes:
- Privacy : To provide support in a way that reflects the right of disabled people to privacy.
- Dignity : To understand disabled people as individuals, with individual requirements and to always have respect for them.
- Independence : Allowing disabled people to take informed risks, make their own decisions wherever possible, with support to ensure their health and wellbeing.
- Choice : Giving disabled people the opportunity to select for themselves from a range of alternative options.
- Rights : Maintaining the rights of disabled people at all times.
- Fulfilment : Enabling disabled people to realise their own aims and support them to achieve these goals in all aspects of daily living.
Service Users are encouraged tp participate in the development of their individualised Support Plans. The Involvement of carers, family and friends is also greatly valued.
We offer a wide range of support designed to encourage the service user to pursue individual goals and to take part in a range of activities.
The service is registered with the Care Quality Commission.Our service users, their families, carers, and health and social care professionals are given the opportunity to comment about the service we provide via questionnaires that are sent out on an annual basis. The feedback we receive from these questionnaires helps us to improve the quality of our service and ensure that we are meeting the indiviual needs of our service users.
Referrals can be made by individuals, carers, and professionals such as Social Workers and nurses to our contact details below.
This will then be followed up with a home visit to discuss requirements in more detail, and if appropriate to complete an assessment. The assessment ensures that the Service Users’ requirements are clearly identified and that an appropriate Support Worker is found, taking into account the level and type of support required and individual interests and personalities.
There is a fixed hourly rate for support dependent on the needs of the service user, and any activity/transport costs during the support session are extra.
For full details of current fees please get in touch with us and a copy of our service agreement is available on request.
We are committed to providing a quality support service that listens to its service users.
