Oxfordshire Support Service
Oxfordshire Support Service provides supported living services for adults who have learning disabilities or are autistic.
Provision is currently offered for 6 people living within a supported living scheme (offering 6 self-contained one-bedroom bungalows) in Banbury. This service is specifically designed to support people with learning disabilities or who 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.
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.
"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
Access to our specialist support team is available as an integral component of the support service. We offer direct support for individuals in order to develop life skills to the full. The support service includes:
Positive Behaviour Support Practitioners, offering:
- Functional and environmental assessments
- Positive behaviour support planning
- Goal-setting and review
- Analysis of behavioural challenges with guidance to minimise and manage these
Visual Impairment Rehabilitation, offering:
- Functional vision assessments
- Training in mobility and orientation, communication and independent living skills
- Guidance about assistive technology, including advice and awareness training to staff and other professionals
Speech & Language Therapy, offering:
- Eating and drinking (dysphagia) assessments and guidance
- Support to develop communication skills
Supported living services are designed to meet daily living, social and personal care needs. These are arranged through a combination of one-to-one, two-to-one and shared support hours.
"Care planning is done in a thorough, evidence-based approach and gradually builds on advancing the life skills of the person." A health professional
