Great Western supported living has a philosophy of person centred support, giving choice, independence, and encouragement enabling the service users to develop and maintain skills to give them the freedom to be as independent as possible and to reach their potential and fulfil their dreams. Supporting new opportunities for achievement with informed choices and managed risks so that there is a continuous path of progress.
We work with multi-disciplinary teams, actively encouraging families to be involved and all professionals who are identified as needed to support an individual within their care and support package. Utilising Personal Daily Outcomes we also encourage and support individuals to reach their own personal goals.
