Support planning

Staff assist clients to complete a flexible and personalised support plan using the Outcomes Star model, to identify their personal goals and take the steps needed to become more independent. Our support is tailored to each person’s individual needs and can include telephone support and one-to-one support sessions in the home or local community.

Our highly-trained staff can provide support five days a week, during office hours. Support levels can vary to suit the client’s needs, from just a couple of hours a week, to more frequent and regular levels of support.
