Message to Parents & Carers:
As parents & carers of learning disabled adults all know, the future holds uncertainty for our young people.
Who will look after our young people, when we are no longer able to? Will their lives and livelihoods always be subjected to changes in Government policy & bureaucratic systems within Local Authorities?
This opportunity has been developed to provide four young people with learning disabilities the opportunity to live as independently as possible, in a ‘house share’, as their own home.
Here they can develop their independent living skills with the appropriate personalised support, based on their individual needs, interests and aspirations.
It can be funded in a number of ways e.g. through ‘Direct Payments’ – please see ‘How can it be paid for’ page for more details.
We recognise not all individuals will be ready to live independently. We can therefore provide a number of options from Respite Care, Trial overnights or weekends, as well as our Independent Living Skills Development Service, where an individual can develop their skills in a variety of way, through daytime activities (Please see Independent Living Skills Development)
