A Social Enterprise providing community based support for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism in the South West

Join F's Team in Yeovil

You First Support Services is a Social Enterprise specialising in delivering a range of community-based support solutions for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism.

F is a 23-year-old man living independently in the Yeovil area, Somerset. He enjoys drumming, walking the family dog, going to the gym, football, swimming, developing his carpentry skills, accessing his local community and animation films.

F has a learning disability, autism and epilepsy. He needs support to maintain his emotional and physical wellbeing and to navigate day to day life. F needs support staff that can help him feel safe and who can work with him in a therapeutic way that facilitates this. His support does not involve Personal Care.
