This supported living service in Leatherhead offers daily assistance for adults with a range of disabilities. We specialise in supporting and assisting people with learning disabilities and sight loss to live independently in their own homes. 

"I’ve been supported by SeeAbility for a very long time now and I enjoy it here. My greatest achievement was doing the John O’Groats to Lands End tandem bike ride in 2010 and raising money for SeeAbility," says Ivan, supported by SeeAbility

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.
