We offer a person centred, holistic service tailored to the needs of each individual. We can provide a range of information, advice, signposting and practical support, including day opportunities support, to meet the needs of each person. We work with individuals to find out what their needs are and what they want to achieve in their life. We aim to maximise each person’s independence to enable them to live as full and happy a life as possible.

Community outreach - supporting people to live independently

Queens Cross Network offers a community outreach service that provides short term support to enable people to live an independent life in their own homes and in the local community.

We can provide practical help supporting you to achieve your goals. This could include:

  •  Home management skills
  •  Banking and budgeting skills
  •  Independent shopping skills
  •  Maximising support networks
  •  Accessing the community

If you are interested in the community outreach service a member of the team will visit you at home to talk to you about what you would like to achieve. You will then be allocated a dedicated support worker who will work with you to develop a personal plan supporting you to achieve your goals.

Regular programme reviews will take place to ensure you are happy with your progress. Once a community outreach programme has been completed we are only a telephone call away should you require further support.

Queens Cross network is a Safe Places Venue and a Community Information Point and our excellent toilet facilities are registered with the changing places website.
