Care Support In Gloucester

Connections 2 Independence offers a wide range of support to young people with additional needs. This can include supporting them with daily tasks within their own homes, with their families and out in the community. This support encourages and allows these young people to develop positive relationships and learn basic life skills. ​

Our support is built on a personalised plan for the individual and work closely with families to identify any needs that could be worked on during a 1:1 Session.

Connections 2 Independence offer a wide range of services, as listed below. If you feel you require a service which is not below, please feel free to contact us.

PA Sessions

These are 1-1 sessions with an individual which has support needs and would benefit from their own member of staff. PA Sessions can start at 2 hours and can be as many hours as needed, most individuals usually have 4-6 hour sessions.

Over Nights

We offer overnight stays within your own home or within your PA’s. This can offer families and carers a break or be able to have an opportunity to social with friends and family. If an individual has an overnight stay at their PA’s address, house viewings are welcome. The individual will have their own bedroom.

Weekend/Week Short Breaks

We offer ‘respite’ breaks and are able to offer any days which best suit individuals and families. This again can be done within your own home or within your PA’s.

Support with Transport

We also offer support with transport, this can be to school, college or day centres. 

Playscheme

We offer a playscheme service to children and young people in the half terms at Milestones School. These run on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We include a wide variety of different activities. These activates include arts and crafts, swimming, baking, soft play, garden games, puzzles, messy play, sensory needs and so much more. We tailor our activates to meet our individual needs and will always adapt and expand on the support required. 

While Connections 2 Independence can provide many services, there are minimal services we are unable to provide due to regulations by Ofsted and CQC.

When we receive a referral form from you, this is when our team leaders will be able to spend time to identify support needs you require, and if support can be offered, we will then make contact for the next steps.
