We offer a sitting and befriending service to Nottingham City and County for clients with a range of learning disabilities. We support both adults and children over the age of 5 years old.  Support is available either in the client’s home or out and about in the community. This could include, for example, trips to the cinema, walks in a park, swimming, trips to the shops etc.  Our aim is to offer the client the opportunity to access activities and social experiences to build their life skills, self-confidence and self-esteem.  We help to develop basic life skills in the home and community, including independent travel training and making healthy lifestyle choices.

This service also gives the parents, carers and their families some respite time and an additional source of support.

If you have a dependent turning 18 within the next couple of years we can offer you support through transition from child services to adult services and signpost you to the appropriate agencies.
