Each person receives personalised support that is specifically tailored to meet their needs, wishes and expectations.
This is achieved through us really getting to know the person and understanding what is important to them. We also work with people’s families and other significant people in their lives to gather further relevant information that can inform how we successfully support each individual.
Examples of the type of support we can provide are:
- Personal care
- Access social, leisure and community activities and events
- Administering medication
- Learning to become more independent at home and in the community
- Behaviour management
- Making choices and decisions
- Emotional and psychological support
- Learning to understand their autism and learn skills and strategies to overcome some of the barriers and difficulties they may be experiencing
- Financial management and budgeting
- Shopping and eating a healthy diet
- Independent travel
- Attending college or university
- Promoting people’s health, safety and well-being
- Housing support
- Establishing structures and routines
- Attending meetings or appointments
- Meeting family and friends
- Advise and support relating to sensory issues
Through our recruitment processes we work hard to ensure that the skills, experiences, interests and personalities of staff are matched to the specific needs and personal qualities individuals prefer. We believe this is essential in achieving positive, trusting and professional relationships.
ESPA’s multi-disciplinary team provide additional professional support, guidance, training and advice to staff. They will liaise with community health professionals where appropriate. They may provide specialist assessment and interventions.
We never use external agency staff to deliver our support.
