My son’s life has improved a lot thanks to the care received from Futures. He is always supported with his college, gardening work, gym, sports and anything he wants to do.
Supported Living is a service built for the purpose of maintaining a person’s independence, enabling them to live their own life through our flexible individually-tailored support.
Unlike Residential Care, the individual receiving care is still in charge of their own bills, such as utilities and rent, which can be funded either through the individual’s benefits or personal earnings. This means that if the care provider changes, the tenancy does not – ensuring a strong home security.
In our shared accommodations, individuals are supported through a mixture of 1-to-1 care and shared support, depending on the specific needs of the individual. Our aim is to enable independence. Henceforth, our support is multifaceted and can range from help with day-to-day tasks, such as washing, cooking, and managing one’s finances, to helping realise a person’s goals, whether that be securing work or educational study.
People with a wide range of conditions and learning disabilities can benefit from a Supported Living arrangement. Even those with more complex needs may find the advantages of Supported Living in its promotion of independence and self-efficacy, while taking comfort in its assurance of individually-tailored, Person-Centred support. Supported Living may be especially beneficial for those leaving a Residential Care setting, for those who intend to leave the Family Home, or simply, those who wish to have a greater level of control over their lives.
While providing each person with their all so important private space, our shared accommodations also provide the opportunity for socialisation, discouraging feelings of isolation that can incur in single-occupancy accommodations. Should it be needed, the shared accommodation also ensures the access to around-the-clock 24 hour assistance.

David had spent all of his life living in the family home. When his mother became ill, requiring hospital admission, he stayed with another family member for a short period. Sadly, David’s mother passed away and David required a new long term home.
David was supported to look at various placement options and ultimately chose a Supported Living setting with Futures Care as his preferred choice. He was supported in purchasing new items of his own and was able to chose the décor for his room.
Initially there were some difficulties for David settling into his new home. Not only was he managing his grief, but he was also encountering many significant changes in his life circumstances. With staff support, David was able to adjust to the changes he has faced and is now a valued and much liked member of his household. He regularly socialises and participates in activities with those and he lives with and has recently created a lockdown memory book.
