  • Location Information
  • Supported Living is an important step towards independence. We know how important it is for people to have the right support so they can live the life they want to live. We are delighted to be able to support people with learning disabilities in Staffordshire take those steps towards living independently and achieving their goals.


    Working with Registered Housing Providers, we support people to find their own home that suits their needs. This might include large living space, a garden, a wet room or bathroom to accommodate reduced mobility, as well as local community facilities. We ensure that their needs and preferences are met and that people are able to easily do the things they want to do.


    We are here simply to support people to achieve their goals and dreams, whatever they may be. Our aim is to help the people we support to build their skills and confidence, so they are able to live as independently as possible
