Exeter Support Service
This supported living service in Exeter offers purpose-built accessible accommodation for adults with a range of disabilities and complex needs. We specialise in supporting and assisting people with learning disabilities and sight loss to live independently in their own homes.
Luke (pictured) lives at Exeter Support Service and after working with a SeeAbility Speech and Language Therapist, received botox injection treatment for a condition called spastic dysarthrophonia, which was affecting his speech. The results have been dramatic and Luke says:
"My new voice has made me feel alive and that I can live my life to the full and enjoy every moment."
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.
Our support enables 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.
Our specialist support team work closely with the people we support, providing rehabilitation to people with sight loss to help them maintain and develop skills, and be more independent. We have speech and language therapists who support people with communication difficulties and the team also provides assistive technology and accessible information.
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.
Our facilities and accommodation
Exeter Support Service contains eight fully accessible self contained flats provided by Sovereign Housing Association. Each flat has a bedroom, lounge/diner, kitchen and bathroom or shower room. There are also shared communal areas — a lounge and conservatory, plus individual patio areas and a shared garden.

"The staff were passionate about supporting people to lead an independent and fulfilling life. They were exceptionally skilled and resourceful in helping people overcome problems and barriers in their lives. A person told us, 'Life is much more settled now. A vast improvement. I am in a good environment that enables me to live my life as I want to live it.'"
