ID Support is a domiciliary care agency, established in 2003, which specialises in working with adults and children who have one or more of the following: learning disabilities, physical disabilities, sensory impairment, ASC (Autistic Spectrum Condition). We have a wealth of experience working with adults and children with the above conditions.

Recently inspected by CQC we received a ‘Good’ rating in all 5 categories and were accredited by CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety) in May 2017.

We support clients within their own homes maintaining their own tenancies (Supported Living). We also provide enablement / floating support to clients who require minimal support to access the community.

The services we provide, to adults and young people, are highly individualised and promote the independence of the clients being supported. The outcomes identified within clients’ care plans form the foundation on which to build skills. If clients wish a Person Centred Plan is drawn up with them when they start using ID Support services. Using Person Centred Planning and Approaches to determine clients’ aspirations for the future we are able to identify their pathway for the future. This is reviewed annually to ensure the plans are still relevant.

ID Support initiates the use of Development Plans to identify areas within clients’ support plans which could enable them to progress towards independence. This may involve daily living skills as well as more specialised competencies. The strategies used with Development Plans include Active Support, thereby reducing the clients’ risk of being de-skilled, within a ‘Hotel Model’ service.

We enable clients to actively participate in their communities including supporting them with employment or education opportunities and accessing leisure activities. We have provided jobs coaching services, supporting clients to complete application forms and prepare for interviews. Coaching involves appearance, correct clothing, practising interview techniques and responses to questions, travel training etc. Once successful at getting the job, support is given to the client to enable them to become competent in the required tasks. Support is withdrawn at the pace appropriate to the clients’ needs.

We support children, in the community, to enable social involvement and inclusion as well as to provide respite for families. These services are for a minimum of four hours.
