PERSON CENTRED SUPPORT - ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL
MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
Amber Support provides services that support the aspirations, goals and priorities of each person – we do not have a ‘one size fits all’ service. Our motto is ‘Because you Can’ and this ensures that our support focuses on what people can or would like to do in their lives as opposed to what they cannot do.
It is this attitude that has seen our clients grow from strength to strength as they take control and are involved in discussions and decisions about their preferences, aspirations and personal potential. We encourage clients to better understand the options available to them including where to find information about the range and quality of services available in their local community.
Many of our clients have gone on to achieve greater independence with the gaining of both voluntary and paid employment. For example Chester, who works for Amber Support as our Client Voice Manager, he recently applied to be on the Management Committee of Speak Easy NOW. With the support from his staff team he completed the Application Form and really had to ‘sell himself’ on his experience and the value he would bring to the role – and thanks to all this hard work he heard this month that he had been successful!
Another example is Millie who applied for a Voluntary Role at the local Community Centre and gained a position within the Starlight Café assisting on a regular basis with the many people who attend the social sessions and IT and craft classes. She has been able to grow in confidence and independence and as she says “I feel part of my community”.
