Independent Adult Living

The Treloar’s independence living skills service is a service for young disabled adults, aged 18 – 35, who have the potential to benefit from receiving a longer term independence skills learning / development package in a safe and supportive environment. It is the aim of the service that, within a maximum of 2 years, each person using the service will have moved on to some form of independent living.

We believe that by investing in teaching independence skills we can enable each individual to live a more fulfilled life where they exercise choice, are more independent and ultimately can use their skills and talents to enhance the community. Our goal is that by the end of the programme, all our service users will have learnt the skills that will help them thrive and realise their dreams.

Service

A skilled Personal Assistant will supply core 24/7 care and be on site at all times, this allows the tenant the security of knowing that help is available at a moment’s notice or that there is someone to help with small tasks. Additional care and support requirements including off site training are available from Treloar’s (or, if preferred, elsewhere) and can be purchased through Direct Payments.

The Treloar's core 24/7 service will support the service users to manage their Direct Payment and broker and source their care and support.

All our team are trained to a very high level in supporting physical disability and independence and are supported professionally by the large and specialised team based on the Treloar’s campus.
