Direct ‘Active’ Support is a one to one service that helps you build independence with everyday life skills and achieve your goals…

FOCAS has developed a strong reputation for providing high quality, ‘active’ one to one direct support. We ensure that we take the time to get to know you and those close to you, your likes, dislikes, interests and goals. This enables us to hand-select the Community Facilitator we think will be most compatible with you. We then provide the opportunity for you and the Facilitator to meet and get to know each other before we commence formal support services in your home, or in a community setting. FOCAS will make sure that the partnership we form with you will be rewarding and enduring.

Over time, you will have the opportunity to get to know other Community Facilitators and a small team can be created to deliver effective, individual support. We understand that developing a positive and trusting relationship is essential for effective direct support. At FOCAS you won’t receive support from any staff who you don’t know.

FOCAS’ Active’ Support services will be individually tailored to meet your expressed needs and goals. FOCAS can support you with things like:

  • Joining an interest group or club
  • Getting a job or volunteer position
  • Participating in recreational activities, exercise or gym programmes
  • Developing your independent living skills like budgeting, travelling, shopping, cooking and other domestic duties
  • Engaging in a sporting or leisure activity
  • Attending appointments
  • Developing your social skills and expand your social circle
