Working Towards Making a Difference


Established for over 30 years Access For Living provide tailor made support for people which enables them to live as independently as possible and access the same world and its opportunities as anyone else. We give continuity of support for as long as is needed to develop independence and reduce reliance on paid for support.

Our Values

Our aim is to enable people to live their own lives in their own homes, be part of their local communities & develop as individuals and work to achieve their aspirations. We believe the right to individual quality support should not be compromised by payment models or the needs of the provider, but solely determined by the needs of the individual as identified by them and those closest to them.

We want the people we support to be as independent as possible, and we work with them to develop their skills and confidence both in their home and community. Access for Living support people to access the same meaningful opportunities in their life as those we all aspire to.
