Support and Independence Teams

The Support and Independence Teams bring together some existing community services to offer an additional level of support to adults who need assistance in their daily activities.

The team will help you to regain your independence after an accident, illness or injury. Maybe you need support to stop you having to be admitted into hospital or to live at home again after leaving hospital. You may also want expertise to help you manage a long term health condition.

How we work

We are a team of dedicated staff who will support and help you to live an independent life and where necessary will help with longer term solutions, or ways of dealing with a difficult situation. We can help you re-learn recently lost skills or to find new ways of doing things.

We have a range of therapists, nurses and other health and social care staff within the team who will be able to help you. Here are just a few examples of the support the team can offer:
