Community Outreach


Hand in Hands currently support approximately 40 individuals, including some who live alone in their own accommodation and others who live with families.


Hand in Hands recognise that individuals needs are different; some are self-sufficient, with the capacity to make their own decisions and live a semi-independent life, whilst others require continuous care and support.

 

Hand in Hands ensure the individuals we support are provided with the opportunity to lead an independent life and play an active part in the community.  This enables them to experience everything their community has to offer, whether this is attending college, following interests and hobbies or simply meeting new people and making friends.


Young people and adults are also provided with the necessary support to maintain their health and well-being, find employment or education, and develop friendships, with the aim of gradually reducing the level of support to enable further independence once daily living skills, including travel training and positively managing risk have been developed.


Hand in Hands core values are to respect, support and promote the dignity, rights and self-determination of each individual and our  community and outreach support is an integral part of our service, with staff enabling, empowering and supporting individuals to have the

quality of life that we ourselves would wish for.

"Supporting individuals with learning disabilities to live independently in the community, as we believe their life does not stand still, therefore neither can we"
