Services include support planning, personal budgets, advocacy, disability advice (including benefit claims) as well as sports and leisure activiites. We also provide work experience opportunities for disabled people and run a weekly youth club.

The Direct Payments scheme is a UK Government initiative in the field of Social Services that gives users money directly to pay for their own care, rather than the traditional route of a Local Government Authority providing care for them.
