Enable and Empowerment Services for Adults with additional needs
We are committed to supporting our clients to have a positive and full live and become an active member of the local community. We promote and ensure safety at all times and do not see disabilities as a barrier and maximise independence and social inclusion.
Each client will receive a package that is designed around them, ensuring a person centred approach at all times. We will do this by always having the individual concerned at the centre of ALL decision making processes to ensure that they live their life to its full potential.
Enhance existing daily living skills - we will support and guide you verbally with personal hygiene routines, be hands on in teaching cooking and domestic skills.
We will teach you new skills to enable you to live as independently as possible - these would be set out on an individual basis based on assessments
Respite/ Day Care
We can provide respite care and support for Adults with additional needs in the comfort of our Yaxley based home or in the community. Our services range from a sitting service for a couple of hours to 24 hour live-in support. We offer person centred care and support, so the main carer can rest and recharge whilst we take over and support the individual for a set period of time.
Support & Social Groups
Empowerment First LTD Arts and Crafts Social and Support Group. We are a group for adults with additional needs to meet and socialise whilst learning new skills through fun art and craft activities. The group is overlooked by a qualified post 16 Special Needs Teacher and experienced volunteers. We are open Monday and Thursday: 10:30am - 2:00pm.

Laising with professionals
Liaising with other professionals - we provide 1:1 support for all medical appointments and professional meetings.
