Transition services

We offer a broad range of options to young disabled people planning a move from specialist school or college, and at other stages in their lives.

Independent living and community support

Nationally, our support at home services provide support to thousands of people living independently in their own homes.

Packages of care and support are very flexible and person-centred, and can include personal care as well as one-to-one support to access educational, employment and leisure opportunities in the community.

Supported living

Working in partnership with registered social landlords, we can provide a wide range of supported living options for young people and other disabled people in transition.

Every day, people using our supported living services take a next step towards living more independently, using the expertise of our staff to learn new skills and access community based groups, jobs and volunteering opportunities.

Care homes

Many of our care homes have a special focus on the needs of young people. Many are also registered as care homes with nursing, enabling us to support people with the very highest level of personal care needs.

In addition, these services also provide specialist short-term placements, usually for around two to three years, for people who require a registered environment as the first step towards a more independent lifestyle.

Short break and respite services

Most of our services can provide the option of short break support, which can be particularly helpful in managing a smooth transition process.
