Learning Disability Day Service
There are three routes available to access a service from our day support:
Direct Payment – Self Directed Support, this is where you have your personal budget, and you spend the money allocated to you on your care and support.
Have a care manager/case manager/Social Worker appointed by the local authority. If you are interested in support from our service, talk to your care manager and request they contact us to discuss funding agreements.
Self fund - this is where you privately fund the fees, normally due to not being eligible for support from the local authority due to having savings over £23k.
If you would like to receive day support from us, to learn and experience motor mechanics, please call us on 01634 786480
We will take a few details, then arrange a home visit in order to carry out an initial assessment.
An initial assessment is essential, to assess whether we can support you, and to ensure you will fully benefit from our service.
Please call us to discuss our fees.
