Within there are currently 30 plus people being supported in 17 different locations.  Many of these receive support right around the clock.

At present, funding for services is received from a number of different streams; from individuals and from local authorities. Increasingly, it is likely that there may be a greater emphasis on individuals holding their own budgets. Service providers like ourselves will need to ensure that they are providing what people want to purchase; we welcome that change and seek now to respond to individuals in a person-centred and specifically-tailored way.
