For our Adult services we like to adopt the moto “my life, my choice”. We put our adult members first in everything we do, building activities, events and opportunities around what they want.
We offer adults (anyone over the age of 18) the opportunity to do the things they want to do. We like to think of ourselves less as disability support, and more about enabling people to lead the life they want.
During the week we run evening activities that range from pub nights to drama club, bowling to meals out and lots more in between. At the weekends might visit theme parks, go swimming, see live music events, enjoy nature days, participate in sports and visit the theatre.
But we don’t stop there. We offer a wide choice of respite breaks and holidays throughout the year. You could have a local weekend in Great Yarmouth or venture further afield to Skegness or the Lake District. Once a year we go further afield for a break in the sun, visiting somewhere like Spain.
Deciding what you’re going to do and when is easy. Every two months we’ll send you a list of all the social activities available to you and you get to choose which ones you take part in. That way, you know you’ve got two months of socialising ahead of you!
Our adult services aim to:
- Build and maintain friendships
- Support integration into community environments
- Provide a wide choice of activities, opportunities and breaks
- Create an inclusive environment for all abilities
- Achieve and celebrate goals together
- Maintain confidence and skills to use in everyday life
- Encourage a healthy, active and fun lifestyle
You can access our adult services through:
- A referral from your social worker
- Contacting us directly
Our adult services are priced by the hour and depend on the level of support that you will need. This ranges from Level 1 (low level needs that require little assistance in enjoying a social life and minimal support with money and safety) to Level 5 support (someone with very specific needs and challenging behaviour where there might be a risk of theft, self-harm, absconding or a serious medical attention).
How you can pay:
- Using a personal budget or direct payments.
- Your social worker can directly commission hours for you to spend with us.
- You can use your own money and fund yourself.
