Supported placements offer a variety of stimulating and interesting experiences 'tailor made' to individuals interests, support needs and abilities. Individuals can choose to concentrate on one main area or 'pick and mix' between areas and activities. Individuals work in small groups supported by experienced staff; all staff have enhanced DBS checks.
