Since 2001 we have supported vulnerable adults, many with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and mental health issues to live an active, healthy life, safely, within their own homes and be fully involved within their local communities.
Our members are active in our networks learning essential life skills, becoming more independent whilst spending more time with friends and becoming less reliant on paid support.
The Difference We Make
Members of Neighbourhood Networks get the flexibility and responsive support to meet their own personal care needs.
Each individual is supported to establish a life in which they are safe and more independent.
Members have opportunities to experience a real sense of belonging and involvement.
They are far less isolated and lonely as they develop their confidence and self-esteem.
Members learn new skills such as independent travel, cooking, life skills, budgeting and much more including volunteering and employment skills.
Who Can Benefit?
Neighbourhood Networks emphasise the importance of providing preventative models of support and opportunities for mutual support, to vulnerable people who might receive little or no support and run the risk of entering significant but nonetheless avoidable crisis in their lives.
It has its roots firmly in the notion of the renewal or revival of neighbourhoods and the wider community as places where people don’t just share the same streets but actively co-operate with each other for mutual advantage.
Our Network Members are all individuals and have very individual needs and wants.
Some of our Network Members have a learning disability; some a physical disability; some have mental health issues; and some just feel lonely and isolated from other people.
If you would like to become a Network member or even just want to know if there is a Network in your area then give us a call.
