Service Description

Description of Service

Avalon is a social care charity. We have delivered care and support services to people across the North of England for the past 20 years. We currently support around 800 customers with a range of support needs, including: acquired brain injury, autism, challenging behaviour, complex needs, dementia, learning disabilities, mental health issues, older adults, physical disabilities, sensory loss. Our mail services include Supported Living, Community Support and Shared Lives. Supported Living provides care and support services to individuals to help them to remain living in their own homes, maintain and develop independence. Community Support provides individuals with care and support to undertake leisure, social, educational and work activities in their community. Shared lives enables people with care and support needs to share the home of a fully trained carer as part of their Shared lives family. We are an established local social care provider - we currently deliver care and support to over 150 customers across Teesside. Local delivery activity is managed from our office in nearby Stockton. Within Hartlepool, we are members of the Council's Framework for Provision of a Support Service for People with Autistic Disorders. As part of the Framework, we can offer care and support services to help people with autism to live independently and participate in activities in the community. We also offer care and support services to privately funded customers across Teesside and have recently launched a dementia specific care and support service.
