Developing Independent Living Skills
You are encouraged and supported to live as independently as you are able and to have as much involvement in running your home as you want to. You will also be supported and encouraged to be active within your community as much as you wish and are able to.
Living in your own home means you have better access to your community and gives you the chance to experience more in your daily life. We provide the support you need to be able to live independently or with a group in your own home, in rented public or private housing.
A night time support roster is either covered by sleepover staff or by staff on an ‘awake’ shift. We listen to your individual needs and wishes to develop a roster where qualified support staff can be on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so you can live as independently as possible.
You are encouraged and supported to be responsible for the running of your home and manage your daily living expenses such as household costs and personal expenses. If you are living in shared or rented accommodation, your tenancy agreement can be established in your own name and we will support you to manage tenancy obligations such as inspections and furnishing your home.
