Bicester Support Service
Bicester Support Service provides supported living services for adults who have learning disabilities or are autistic.
We provide support for up to 11 people living within two supported living schemes (seven self-contained properties and one shared four bedroom house) in Bicester and Kennington. This service is specifically designed to support people who have learning disabilities or are autistic to live and engage in their local community, as part of the ‘transforming care agenda’.
We aim to excel as a specialist provider of quality care and support, ensuring the people we support are at the heart of everything we do.
We support 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. This has earned the service an 'Excellent' rating from PAMMS, one of only five in the region to receive the top rating.
"I’ve always been very impressed by you and your team’s commitment to the people you support. It’s fantastic to see people living in their own homes who otherwise would probably be in institutional care." A local commissioner
