The North Tyneside Service currently support clients to live within their own homes across the North Tyneside area. Each client has their own tenancy and they live either on their own with support or with other clients. We have 5 houses in total.
The ages of our clients vary from mid twenties to late fifties and their level of ability varies just as much, from people with complex health needs, and people who attend college to clients that need support with all aspects of daily living. All have a learning disability or mental health issues.
Service supports one client to live in their own home. The client attends a occupational training centre 5 days a week and receives support at home with all aspects daily living.
We support clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and provide support around their identified needs which can include sleep ins at the persons home.
Within the service we also support clients with individual budgets to access the community or attend leisure/ community events or appointments.
We currently have three clients being supported in this way, all with packages tailored to their needs.
