You First Support Services is a Social Enterprise formed as a Community Interest Company that supplies a range of support solutions for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism. We also support people who have a diagnosed mental health condition. Each of our customers have a dedicated team that they themselves have chosen and support is personalised and based upon each individuals Design for Life.
The emphasis of our support is to tackle social isolation, support people to take advantage of naturally occurring community support thus reducing the need for paid support and to see people growing in autonomy and empowerment.
We are currently forming our Advisory Board. This Board will be made up of a range of Stakeholders who have a commitment to seeing people with learning disabilities grow their lives and lead them in a meaningful way that makes sense to them. The focus of our support is around our Four Pillars and these are: Enablement, Empowerment, Opportunity and Progression. We are keen for people to join our Advisory Board who can help us take this Social Mission forward across the South West. We are looking for people to join us from Somerset, Devon, Dorset and Wiltshire.
If you would like to join please email Andy Robinson and he will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
