What does support mean?

When you support someone with a Learning Disability you are their Advocate, their friend and the one person they can rely on to keep them safe.  You will encourage them, motivate them, and ensure they live a life open to the same opportunities as everyone else. You will support them by:

  • Ensuring they have a routine.
  • Keep up to date with their bills & are sensible with their money.
  • Encourage them to keep their house tidy (not everyone loves housework!)
  • Preparing meals together, and teaching someone cooking skills.
  • Doing activities together that the person loves.
  • Sharing a hobby.
  • Going to the football or doing some crafts.
  • Supporting them to appointments, visiting the gym or days out.
  • Enjoying each other’s company and been someone they trust.
