1) Enhancing the lives of the local community
We provide a wide range of services to enhance the lives of people in the community, including:
- help at home
- help and support to get out in the community
- therapeutic services
- independent care services
2) Creating benefits for local community
Examples of how we have benefited the community:
We have provided a range of supporting services to vulnerable people, to enhance their lives and promote independence and prevent social isolation. This includes spending time with people, arranging trips and sometimes accompanying them, helping with shopping, promoting and supporting with access to the community etc.
We have ensured that our appointee clients receive the correct benefits and also that other people in the community can access their rights to benefits. We are a corporate appointee recognised by the Department for Work and Pensions, and have partnered with a local organisation, which works with people with learning disabilities, to support them through the benefit process.
We have delivered therapeutic services to enhance the lives of people and promote their wellbeing. These services are delivered to individuals or groups, and can be in the form of Pet Therapy or Therapeutic Arts using art, music, photos and dance etc.
We have carried out independent Social Care services to ensure peoples needs are being met appropriately, their mental capacity assessed, and any entitlement to health care funding is considered.
3) Outcomes of activities
We have helped to prevent a care home from closure meaning that the 5 residents are able to retain their home, some of whom have lived there over 30 years.
We have also been able to increase the turn around time for solicitors and other professionals on Mental Capacity assessments enabling Lasting Power of Attorney or Court of Protection Applications to be processed more speedily.
We have been able to provide Welfare Reviews and make recommendations for people otherwise missed by the system.
We are always looking for services we can provide that will offer our customers positive outcomes.
