Independent Supported Living:

We support a number of adults with learning disabilities in Newcastle and Northumberland, enabling them to live as independently as possible in their own homes.

Working with other professionals we carefully tailor a support plan that provides the right level of assistance for that person’s needs, ambitions and aspirations. We encourage every individual to develop the life skills they need to maintain their independence and individuality and gain confidence in their ability to make their own decisions and choices, and be full, active and equal members of the community.
