Cornerstone is a high-quality provider of person-centred social care services for people with learning disabilities, mental health and other needs.

To support our service users we provide a range of services to meet their differing needs, including Housing Support, Outreach and Companionship also including Support Planning and PA Recruitment.

I work with people who have a wide spectrum of needs, ranging from those who require short term support to regain their independence to people with complex needs who require intensive support to enjoy a good quality of life.

 

I have a background in Transition planning and support young people as they plan to leave school and plan their own futures through Person Centred Practices.  

Housing Support deliver this service by providing practical support in people’s homes. I can assist people with things like:

  • Support with paying bills

  • Menu planning, cooking, and shopping

  • Help with domestic tasks/cleaning.

  • Support to attend and make doctor’s appointments & other health appointments.

  • Help to arrange repairs.

  • Help with correspondence.

 

My services are individually tailored. I provide housing support that meets people's specific needs which we will document this through a support plan.

Support is put into place to achieve whatever the person requires to enable them to live in their own homes as independently as possible.

I encourage each person to achieve their goals and tailor support to meet individual needs, promote enablement and deliver outcomes

Outreach support people to do specific things, such as help with going shopping, attending college, using public transport or managing money. This might be for a few hours a week, or much more. Often, people who receive outreach support live on their own, or with families or partners.

There can be different levels of support and for varying periods. We can work with the person, their family, advocates, Social Workers and health professionals to ensure support is aimed at enhancing skills and community networks in a safe and enabling way giving the skills and support to live independently and achieve full potential.
