Our supported living services in the Bradford area of West Yorkshire enable people with learning and physical disabilities to live in their own home, or their family home, with the support they need to do so.
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to live independently and to make their own choices and decisions about their lives. In our supported living services, we offer support to develop life skills to assist independent living, learning and working. This service is for people with learning disabilities who want to live independently and need support to do so.
Supporting people with all aspects of living independently:
Living Skills including cooking, cleaning, washing, ironing, gardening, rights and responsibilities.
Community Living including finding out about services near their home, including day services, accessing social and community activities.
Money including paying bills, budgeting and saving, claiming and collecting benefits.
Housing, helping people to understand their tenancy, what their rights are and health and safety.
Personal care can also be provided, which is assessed on an individual basis.
Training and development of the people who work for SJOG are key priorities to ensure service delivery is of the highest standard. There are values that we uphold in all that we do to make sure we treat people with Hospitality, Compassion and Respect.
