What happens next?

We offer a FREE, no obligation, home visit to discuss your needs

Our first meeting is about listening to you to ensure that we understand your requirements. We will talk to you about costs and sources of funding and discuss with you how we will arrange your support.

Once you decide to proceed we will assign a Team Leader who will:

Regular reviews ensure that we continue to provide high quality support which can be adjusted as your needs or personal goals change.

Having control and the freedom to choose what to do has really changed my life

Being able to keep my independence has been brilliant, thank you SIL
