How We Support


Person-centred charity

Our approach is based on being a person-centred charity. This means that we don’t do things for people, but instead work with them; supporting everyone differently.

We always…

Start by agreeing a support plan, unique to the person. It’s about choice, and being there for someone as they make plans to achieve their hopes and dreams.

On any given day, we may support:

  • an older person with dementia to live independently in their own home.
  • a dad of young children to reduce his risk of eviction by understanding his responsibilities as a tenant.
  • a young family with respite care.
  • someone leaving a long-term hospital stay.

We offer community-based and recovery-focused services for people with addictions, enabling you to move-on from problem addictions to live and independent and fulfilled life.

Each person’s experience of autism is unique. Our person-centred approach ensures that each person’s support is as unique as they are by providing the right support, at the right time, in the right way.

supporting dementia


Each person’s experience of living with dementia is different. Our person-centred approach ensures we provide timely, skilled and well-coordinated supports from diagnosis to end of life to help achieve the outcomes that matter to each person.



Everyone needs a safe, warm place to call ‘home’. Home is where we feel safe and secure. Home provides a sense of belonging. Home supports our physical and emotional health and wellbeing. Having a home is a basic human right.
