Supporting people to live independent lives

Our supported living offer

Our supported living service provides 24-hour care that enables people with the most complex needs to live as independently as possible.

We can provide this support in the comfort of the person’s own home or in the accommodation we provide in partnership with local housing providers.

We work closely with trusted housing providers to offer high quality accommodation, ranging from flat schemes to shared houses depending on the needs and wishes of the person supported. These are set within the heart of communities, close to local amenities and transport links. We consider the use of assistive technology to further aid independent living.

Depending on the property, some areas may be shared such as the living room, dining room and kitchen. We encourage the people we support to contribute to decisions about their home, from soft furnishings to how it is decorated.

Meet Sarah

Sarah, 37 years old, is one of the people we support on behalf of St Helens Council.

Sarah has a diagnosis of cerebral palsy, learning disabilities and dysphagia.

Following a breakdown in relationships with previous support providers, Sarah’s team at AFG supported her to pass an assessment for an advanced communication tool, enabling her to build full sentences for the first time. The team support her to participate in a range of activities including hydrotherapy, boxing and discos.

Sarah’s mum Margaret talks about what this has meant for Sarah and their family.
