Elizabeth was born with a learning disability at a time when institutionalised care was the only option. She spent 60 years in a variety of hospitals and care home settings. Changing attitudes, government policy, and the advent of supported living ensured Elizabeth was able to move into her own home and with our support she has taken her rightful place in the community. She is a bright, lively, loving and charismatic lady whose life has been transformed in the process. Watch our short film to see just how much.
Part of our role as Jermaine’s care and support provider is to support her to make her flat her home, to become increasingly self-reliant and to become a part of her local community. Taking part in new activities and making new friends is something that comes easily to some of us, but is a challenge for many of our clients. Jermaine is beginning to build relationships. She now has a part-time job; something she thought was a dream only a short time ago. Learn more about her story.
Broadening our client’s horizons, helping them to explore new activities and keeping fit and healthy is a role that we love. We developed DotComUnity – the online directory of service providers for the Disabled Community to support just this. Watch how Simon discovered the joys of surfing. He took to it like a duck to water!
