The Outreach Support Service provided by Way Ahead is individualised support for vulnerable people, provided in the persons own home. The support is aimed at maintaining and promoting the persons independence, whilst ensuring their needs are met.

* Support with every day household tasks including shopping, cleaning and cooking. 

* Personal care and medication support. 

* Money management advice and support. 

* Accessing the local community including social and community activities. 

* Support to attend health appointments. 

* Support to go on holiday. 


The amount of support can range from 1 hour per week to several visits a day depending on the needs of the person. 

Funding

A number of people have support funded by the Local Authority but the service can be purchased via a direct payment or self-funding.

Christmas meal 2021.jpg

Christmas 2021

A number of Christmas dinners were prepared, with all the festive trimmings, and delivered to some of the people that we support.

Netherfield usually opens on Christmas day and for some of the people we support it is a tradition that they go for the day to be with friends and have a meal. This year Netherfield was closed over the Christmas period so arrangements were made to ensure meals were taken out to people for Christmas day.

Sue came to work today with her proposed new uniform and we love it! 

Our support workers are all working incredibly hard to support people to prepare for Christmas whilst staying as safe as possible. Everyone has been preparing for all the possible issues that COVID may present to us all over the coming weeks...however we are also finding some time to add some much needed festive cheer for what has been another incredibly difficult year for frontline workers.
