Supported Living service
was established in 2002
and supports service users
to live independently in
their own homes.
These are achieved by respecting the needs and wishes of service
users and encouraging their individual aspirations on a day to day
basis. Fully understanding and knowing those placed in our care is
key to the support process, something we accomplish by listening
to the service users, their relatives and advocates to build tailored
programmes of care and support.
Each service user is allocated a key worker to work with them in the overall
planning and delivery of the support that is needed. Service planning for
individuals includes creating opportunities for education, employment,
leisure, recreational and social and life skills development. Service users are
supported to manage their finances and to develop their budgeting skills.
The Service operates every day of the year at times to suit the individual.
We also provide an out of hours 'on-call' for people to access should an
Every person receives support, to help them make informed choices
about all aspects that affect their lives in whatever they want to do and
how they want to live. Our aim is to enable each person to become as
independent as possible. The support we provide is flexible and based
on the person's needs, preferences and wishes.
Saffronland Supported Living Services focuses on the individual, using
Person Centred Planning to underpin all activities. We believe it is crucial
to know the individual well and wherever possible to closely involve
families and others who care about the service user.
Person Centred Planning evolves as individual needs change.
Fundamental to the service we provide is the value we place on the
individual and the right to live their life their way and not ours.
