At present Access for Living is the largest single provider of daily living support in Lewisham. We currently provide 24-hour support to 42 people living in 10 residential properties and outreach support to a further 35 people.
We specialise in providing tailor made support for each individual that enables them to live as independently as possible and access the same world and its opportunities as anyone else. Our intention is to do that for as long as is needed, giving continuity and reducing the person’s reliance on paid for support.
We don’t want the people we support to be dependent on us for everything, but with support, to work towards and develop their independence in their home and community. For that reason, Access for Living doesn’t do employment schemes, group day activities or segregated group holidays. We support people to access the same meaningful opportunities in their life as those we all aspire to.
