Aldershot Support Service
This supported living service in Aldershot offers purpose-built accessible accommodation for six adults with learning disabilities and a range of other needs, including sight loss, autism and epilepsy. We specialise in supporting and assisting people with sight loss to live independently in their own home.
"I am really happy here and can talk to the staff at any time; they are all very approachable and if I have a problem, they are always willing to help and offer me some good advice. I feel that I am supported at all times." Stephanie (pictured below)
We want to excel as a specialist provider of quality care and support, ensuring the people we support are at the heart of everything we do.
Our aim is to enable people to make choices and express their individuality. Personalisation is not a tick box exercise for us but is fundamental to how we deliver our mission every single day of the year.
Clinical Assessment and Intervention Team
Our Clinical Assessment and Intervention Team includes qualified Vision Rehabilitation Workers (sometimes also called 'ROVIs') and Behaviour Consultants with at least a Masters degree in Applied Behaviour Analysis.
The Vision Rehabilitation workers play a vital role across SeeAbility and keep front and centre, SeeAbility’s commitment to supporting those with sight loss, as well as those with a diagnosis of learning disability or autism.
Where funded, Behaviour Consultants assess each person’s needs by completing a functional assessment, ongoing monitoring, and support. They use this to develop people's person-centred support using a Positive Behaviour Support framework.
The Clinical Assessment and Intervention Team aim to increase individuals' quality of life, reduce unnecessary restrictions and teach functional skills. This means each person we support gets exactly the right kind of expert attention they need, when they need it, so they can make more choices about what they want from life every day.
Supported living services are designed to meet daily living, social and personal care needs. These are arranged through a combination of one-to-one and shared support hours.
"I do like living here, you do what you want; go to the cinema, shopping, eating out, swimming and walking." Someone we support

"There was a calm and relaxed atmosphere within the home. Staff had developed bonds with people and understood and celebrated their personality traits and abilities. […] Staff enabled people to express themselves, develop their independence and fulfil their potential."
Working at SeeAbility has loads of benefits – from the more tangible of annual leave and access to discounts at hundreds of retailers, to knowing that, because of you, someone is able to achieve something they never thought possible.
