Day Services

592_growingvegetablesOur Day Services for people with Learning Disabilities operate across the Cheshire West and Chester area providing personalised support to enable them to maximise their opportunities to engage in social, occupational and educational activities. The services are provided within community venues in order to maximise social inclusion and to reduce isolation. There is a wide range of activities available – for example – sporting groups, creative art groups and college tutor led educational sessions.

Recognising that people accessing the service will have a wide range of needs and abilities means the service is flexible and responsive to ensure that it is truly inclusive and continually delivers interesting and stimulating opportunities.

Supported Living Networks

This service provides personalised support to people with a learning disability living in their own home under supported tenancy arrangements. A key focus being to enable them to live in their own home and be supported to have the same opportunities for independent living, choice and control of their lives and full citizenship as any other person. The service also encourages and supports opportunities for engagement and inclusion within their community.

To achieve this, the service offers;

  • 24 hour support for tenants
  • Individual programmes based on needs and wants
  • A fully trained staff team to support tenants to meet their needs
  • Support for all tenants to the standards of inspection governed by the Care Quality Commission.
  • A community based service, which enables people to move on with independence.

Short stay

Our Short break service, also known as respite, currently operates in the Ellesmere Port and Chester area. This service provides opportunities for carer breaks including emergency support. At the same time, it also offers the individual receiving the support an opportunity to enjoy a change of environment in safe and pleasurable surroundings.

The service delivers a range of activities designed to meet the individual’s assessed needs whilst facilitating and maximising personal independence.

Respite support is available for individuals with a learning disability, Autism Spectrum disorders and to older people – including those with dementia.
