We provide a mixture of residential, supported living and floating support services in the North East and Yorkshire. We have extensive experience of supporting people with: learning disabilities, brain injuries, autism, physical disabilities, sensory needs, epilepsy, diabetes and challenging behaviour.
We are proud of our working relationships with others, especially with the families of the people we support. We recognise fully how important it is for these relationships to be cohesive and respectful for everyone involved especially the individuals we support who are always at the centre of everything we do.
For our supported living services there is no restriction on the type or style of accommodation that an individual lives in. We support people who are home owners, people who are tenants, and individuals who continue to live in the family home, we provide support right across our local communities in the homes that people choose to live.
Our services in the North East comprise of Supported Living North East, Supported Living North Yorkshire, Doncaster and Middlesbrough.
