FTF is great because I know that they are there for me in every way. Thank you FTF! A good supportive team that listen to me all the time. They do their best to give me my support times that are more suitable to me.
I have lots of lovely days out to interesting places which is great for my education.

Home and Community Support offers person-centred care services, through which we enable individuals throughout the Brighton and Hove city area to comfortably enjoy life in their own homes, and to access the community – and all its opportunities - safely. We strive to provide a high-quality service. Through our friendly approach, well-trained staff and forward-thinking philosophies, we regularly achieve high satisfaction ratings from the people we support. 

We believe in treating everyone as an individual with dignity and respect. We pride ourselves on providing the best possible care so that people can grasp hold of independence. We tell people “we want to spend our time getting to know you and the best way in which we can support you, to ensure that the service we provide is the best it can possibly be!”

We have experience of supporting people facing a diverse range of challenges, including learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, mental illness, dementia and/or sensory impairment. Personalised support can be provided from a few hours a week to longer, more frequent, visits. Sometimes our service is linked with allowing family carers a break. Everyone using our service is encouraged to live as independently as possible within their communities with staff providing encouragement, safety and support.

We can help with a wide range of daily living skills. This may include helping people to plan their days, keep their home secure, pay bills, shop and cook, and to get out and about especially where people are at risk of isolation and withdrawal. We are also able to offer complex personal care when needed to support people with disabilities and/or health care conditions. This can help avoid hospital admissions, and can provide reablement support for people leaving hospital.

Other types of support we offer include support in furthering education and employment opportunities, support to attend college or work and to learn bus routes, and to support to enjoy activities such as bowling, gym, badminton, cinema, museums, concerts, going out for lunch or coffee.

We also run an art group and a number of lunch clubs, which combine skill development with a social setting and the opportunity to make new friends.

We have a highly skilled team of care and support staff. We are regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission.
