      Community Outreach and Supported Living Service

      We provide a community outreach and supported living service to people aged 18–55+ who are deaf, deaf blind or who have a hearing loss. People may have additional needs such as a learning or physical disability, mental health issues, substance misuse issues or autism. The staff team work in a person- centred way to meet the needs of the people we support developing their service so they achieve the best possible outcomes. We deliver support from 1 hour per week up to a 24/7 one to one service.

      The aim of the service is to empower and enable people to maintain independent living. The service can offer a wide range of support, for example, support with daily living skills, housing issues, finding work, accessing college courses and training, leisure activities, maintaining independence and reducing social isolation. There is no limit on the length of time people can have access to the service, however we aim to support people to gain independent living skills to enable them to move on from our service when they are able to.

      People using the service should wish to engage and cooperate with the support services, in line with The Domiciliary Care Standards which form an integral part of the project and be willing to work with staff to achieve their goals.

      Referrals are welcome from statutory and voluntary agencies, as well as self referrals.
