Visiting Support

A little bit about Visiting Support

Our Visiting Support service provides individual support to help promote your independence and build your confidence. We work with you and those important to you, such as your family or social worker.   

This service is for adults who live independently, or with their family, and need a little extra help and support to make your own choices and live your life your way. We provide dedicated one-to-one support to help you achieve your goals, help you to build skills, try new things and live more independently.

Who can Ategi support?

We provide person-centred support to people who need support to live their best life. The people we support are unique, but common reasons people need support are due to:

  • A physical disability
  • Learning disability
  • Autism
  • Mental ill health
  • Addictions
  • Needing support after leaving hospital
  • Or moving on from children's services

Our support is tailored to each person we support, supporting them to develop their confidence, skills and increase their independence.

Speak to our team to find out if we can support you.

Whatever your support needs are, we'll create a support plan especially for you.

Each person is unique, bringing their own strengths and abilities. We'll work with you on a plan to help you achieve your own goals.
