Children’s Services

ID provides enabling services that enhance opportunities for young people and children to access a wide range of community activities. We have a strong person-centered ethos and a clear focus on the outcomes that people want to achieve and are committed to supporting access to mainstream services. Additionally, we work to develop new opportunities based on individual interests.

Whether you are looking for an enablement service or short breaks, we will work with you and professionals to ensure a consistent approach to supporting your son or daughter. Wherever possible, activities will be sourced in your local community to facilitate community presence and interaction.

Our Matching Process

Our person-centered matching process ensures that the client and their families have the final say when it comes to selecting the most appropriate support worker. We have a large bank of support workers to ensure a wide choice from backgrounds that ensure the diverse needs of families can be met in a culturally and age the appropriate way.

Our Support Workers

Once you have selected the profile of a worker we will provide you with a short list that matches your specification to help you decide who may be the most appropriate person with skills, interests and experience to best suit your son or daughter’s needs.

All support workers are well trained. They are expected to have good communication skills, be organised and asked to work flexibly to fit in with your requirements. They are friendly, caring, and reliable. Our experienced service managers will work in partnership with you and other professionals to create a truly personalised service, with clear and achievable outcomes identified to enable progress to be identified.

ID Support provides support on varying levels that meet your child’s need; from working for a set period of time to achieve an agreed goal such as to increase skills, independence and confidence so that they can attend local activities independently, for example, we are currently supporting a young person to find the right dance class in her local area that meets her needs.

Support

We provide support for many children and young people to do things they enjoy and have fun, while providing a role model to promote positive social skills and relationships. Some children and young people choose to use their support to meet up with friends and this can take place in a youth club, leisure setting or even a day trip. We provide support on varying levels that can meet your child’s need.
