Our job is to help you live your life in the way you want to live it. We will help you do the things you want to do, in the way and at the time you want to do them.

We have put some links in this site that your family, friends, Social Worker, Advocate or Housing Officer may wish to read.

You Can Help Manage You First Support Services.

We Want You To Help Manage You First Support Services.

We will listen to the things you tell us about our service and we will change the way we do things to make them better. We will then ask you if you think things have got better.

We have a group that you can join where you can talk about the things we do and the way we do them with your friends. We are happy to hear about the things that go wrong or those things that you do not like. You can then tell us about the changes you want. You can choose to have someone you know come to meetings with you. You can send someone to our meetings and they can tell us the things that you would like done differently.

You may want to apply for a job and work with us, for example answering the phone or talking to people about our services and how we have helped you. You may want to volunteer with us, or train with us to learn new skills and grow in confidence. You can help check the things we do to make sure we do them well and properly and let us know the results.
