Being Supported By Us

Some of our support can be purchased by people using their Individual Budgets allocated by social services. This applies particularly at Home and Community Support based in Sussex, to the day activity and respite places at St. Mary's Roehampton in London, and Fernley Day Centre near Formby, Merseyside. Other services are mainly commissioned by local councils. Most are open for referral from areas other than where the service itself is based. All our services, with contact details, are described on this web site – please do enquire if you are interested.

Here's what some of our customers think:

“I have lived at St. Mary's for over 10 years. Life's great and I am supported to live my life to the full. I have a paid job 2 days a week with Wandsworth Borough Council as an office support assistant. I have always wanted a job and I am grateful to the staff that helped me achieve this dream.”

Brigid Craig

“St. Mary's is a nice place to live; the staff are very helpful and friendly. They have helped me to become more independent. I have a nice room with an en suite bathroom. I go to a college in Merton, Wallington and also to a club every Tuesday night. I like going out with my friends and to visit my family.”
