Supported Services

Our Supported Services programme offers adults with additional needs a ‘home’ away from home, with the opportunity to meet friends, have new experiences and learn skills all with the support they need to grow and achieve their potential.

Our aims are based around creating a pathway to independence whilst at the same time being able to provide a person centered approach, regardless of their interests or abilities with a range of activities on offer.

Supported Services provision allows exposure to various activities and life skills for adults with a disability, with great emphasis on developing people holistically. Music, archery, swimming and the gym are just some of the activities on offer.

Our programme supports individuals in being as independent as possible encouraging and teaching them a variety of skills including taking public transport, shopping, cooking, cleaning, washing, horticulture and healthy eating.

The work we do as a service allows for consistency in approach from children through to adults due to positive relationships we have built through the provisions we offer within school, community settings and adult day care. This gives us an extensive knowledge and understanding of the upcoming adults coming through the system. Utilising the person-centred approach we keep communication, reward, behaviour and care support consistent throughout the person’s life.

Cognitive, life and social skills along with continuous improvement in health and wellbeing are all targets our service aims to achieve by working with every individual on a variety of skills, but also placing great emphasis on fun.

We also try to organise respite holidays taking the group on residential trips to experience different activities and lifestyle away from their family.

All our staff are fully qualified in all statutory and relevant training and continually strive to improve. We have commissioned places and bespoke arrangements available, for more information please contact dan.higgins@activetameside.com or speak to your social worker.
