Kent Support Service
- Alström Syndrome
- Bardet-Biedl syndrome
- Learning disabilities
- Visual impairment
Our supported living services in Kent offers either shared or self-contained accommodation for young adults with a range of disabilities. We are specialists in supporting people who are autistic. Our focus is on supporting people to live independently in their own home.
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.
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. Kent Support Service helps people to explore the best options for their budget and help manage direct payment funds.
Our facilities and accommodation
Kent Support Service is made up one shared supported living house which includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms. The service features a shared kitchen, lounge and conservatory, leading to a spacious garden.

"People here want to be independent so we support them to be that. When people make decisions, we give them choices. This can be what activities they want to do or try, what they want to eat to where they want to work."
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.
