Community and home support

What community support is on offer?

We offer fun activities in the community for children and young people, including trips to the cinema, theme parks and swimming.

We normally do these activities as a group based, but we can provide 1:1 sessions if your child cannot manage in a group. We have a mini bus to take young people to the activities but we do ask parents to transport to and from the Light House.

We also run a fortnightly club which helps young people to develop social and life skills. This might be going to the shops or cooking.

We also work with the Complex Behaviour Service and schools to help parents manage their child’s challenging behaviour and support them with routines.

Do you offer support at home?

Our Home Care Aides can help you to wash and dress your child or help them get ready for school or for bed. The team is trained to use hoists and slings.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspects us to make sure we continue to deliver a good service.
