Direct Payments

The Direct Payments scheme is a UK Government initiative that allows you to receive a personal budget from your council to help you pay for the care and support you need day-to-day. 

It gives you more flexibility, control and choice over arranging your support than if you were to take the traditional route of it being arranged by your council.

It allows you full responsibility of your care by either employing a personal care assistant or commissioning services for yourself. 

This scheme is available in England, Scotland and Wales. However, if you live in Scotland or Wales, you will need to contact your council directly. To be eligible, you must also be over the age of 16 and have been assessed by social services.

You can use a direct payment for a variety of things, such as services, equipment or activities that meet your social care needs. 

Like many people, you may decide to choose a support provider to take on all the employment duties and responsibilities and include this in the amount it charges.

We can assist you with managing support, timesheets, and the administrative load to make the support provision as seem as manageable as possible.

Befriending

Befriending offers supportive, reliable relationships through befrienders to people who would otherwise be socially isolated. Befriending often provides people with a new direction in life, opens up a range of activities and leads to increased self-esteem and self-confidence.

Deaf and disabled people

We have an amazing support team who are here to talk, laugh and build lasting friendships with you. As a deaf or disabled person, it can sometimes feel isolating and lonely if you do not feel you have anyone to talk to, or do not have access to social events and groups. That's why we offer our befriending service where you can have some regular company, either by phone, text message, email, or face to face. 

Elderly

We believe that everyone should be able to lead full and independent lives, no matter their age. No one should feel lonely or isolated, so we decided to offer a befriending service. Whether it's a phone call for you to talk over the events of your day or a face-to-face meet-up with one of our team members, we are here to help you live your life to the fullest.  

Role Models

Our role models work alongside Deaf and disabled people to support them in making healthy and positive lifestyle choices. They act as positive role models as they prepare young Deaf and disabled people for adult life.

Role models can help young Deaf and disabled people to avoid the negative social experiences that deafness can bring, whilst helping them navigate some of the hardest years of their lives.

Our role models work alongside our clients to guide them through their transition into adult life, helping them with employment and training opportunities, life skills and building strong and healthy relationships with themselves and others. 

Access to Work

We understand that acquiring and then maintaining a job, whether that be full-time or part-time, can be difficult. We aim to work with our clients to support them on their employment journey and provide them with a high-quality service whilst in employment.

Aimed at supporting deaf and disabled people to take up and remain in work, Access to Work (ATW) is a government programme that offers support based on your needs, which may include a grant to help cover costs of practical support in the workplace.

There is a wide variety of support available through us, including, but not limited to, a communicator, a support worker or a job coach. 

If you believe that you are in need of support within your workplace that isn't covered by reasonable adjustments from your employer, you will firstly need to apply to Access to Work. This can be done in several ways and we are here to guide you through the process.

We are able to provide a variety of services to those in receipt of an Access to Work grant. 

Access to Work provides personalised support to a wide range of deaf and disabled people, from people in paid employment to someone doing a job interview. 

Whether you have been in the role for a while, or just starting a new job, we are able to help.

Testimonials

The whole team have been amazing from the start. They have guided me expertly through the complicated process and arranged support very quickly as soon as it was confirmed.

So much care was taken to match me up with two support workers who had the exact skills and experience that was needed, as well as people who they knew I would get along well with too. I have felt so much relief from working with my support workers, who have helped me with an overwhelming backlog of tasks that I couldn't complete due to my physical disability. 

Working with these wonderful people makes the workday an absolute pleasure and we have so many laughs together. My quality of life and self-esteem has improved tenfold already, in just the first month! I highly recommend contacting this company - they make everything so easy.

Thank you!
