Supported Living Service

Our Supported Living Service is based in Harpenden, we support adults who have a learning disability to live in their homes with individualised support to meet their needs.  From our lovely Georgian building in Harpenden, we can provide individual support in shared accommodation as well as single tenancy flats.

We support people with daily living skills, support to cook, clean, pay bills, and manage their homes. We support people to pursue hobbies and interests, be part of the local community, attend college or find paid employment or voluntary work.

Support with care needs, health needs, and appointments. We assist with activities, help plan leisure time, and support people on holidays and short breaks.

All our tenants develop care plans with the staff team and have the support of key workers to meet with regularly as well as group meetings to have their say about their lives and to plan for the future.

The service is supported by a qualified and professional team who are friendly and approachable and are committed to putting the tenants at the heart of everything they do. Everybody works to a shared vision.
