Supported Living Services
Supported living is a service designed to help people with a wide range of support needs retain their independence by being supported in their own home. People in supported living have their own tenancy and are responsible for their own bills and cost of living.
Affinity Trust is a national charity providing person-centred, innovative support for people with learning disabilities in the UK. We have a history of working with people who have a range of support needs including those who have high, complex or specialist support needs as well as people who have previously been highlighted as having ‘challenging’ reputations. We focus on the individual and their particular needs and work with them to achieve their goals and aspirations.
Many of the people we support have come from institutional settings and we have worked with them to transform their level of independence and often, as a result, their quality of life. Supported living is our main area of support, and we are committed to offering this model for people with learning disabilities in preference to typical residential care homes.
Our mission is to enable people with learning disabilities to pursue active and fulfilling lives, gain increased independence and achieve equal rights as citizens. Our values are to be committed to doing our very best for the people we support and never giving up, reliable, honest and open in all of our relationships and transactions, respectful of others, their views and their rights, inclusive in how we value diversity, support equality of access to opportunities and challenge discrimination, and creative and flexible in our thinking, in our work and in how we use our resources.
