Living with a learning disability can make life that bit more challenging, especially when it comes to managing your home and finances. However our floating support team is there to help.
We provide support with finances, benefits and budgeting as well as practical help with achieving personal goals. The service enables people with learning disabilities to manage their own homes and live independently.
Our team works with people on an individual basis. Our referrals come from adult social care or other professionals.
We support people on both a short-term and long term basis. The service is outcome focused and will be tailored to the individual’s need.
Matt, a Selwood Housing customer, was able to use this service to move into independent living, following his successful job appointment at the local Leekes store. Read more about Matt's story below:
"I like having my own space. My parents were a little worried when I first moved in but are more confident now that I'm here and settled in. I've made friends here and it is very peaceful. I wouldn't change anything about the flat."
