North Yorkshire Supported Living Services enables adults with special care needs, learning disabilities, physical disabilities and mental health issues to live in their own home with the support they need to do so.
The needs of the person using the service are paramount in the design and delivery of the support. Each package of support is developed on an individually assessed basis with each person and their families, and can range from 24-hours per day to one or two hours per week.
A competent, caring and committed staff team is available to meet the needs of those who use our services. Training and development of staff is a key priority for us to ensure service delivery is of the highest standard.
