Self-directed support ensures that people take the lead in planning and developing their individual Pathway Plan and day-to-day activities. These plans may consist of accessing voluntary or paid work placements, further education or learning opportunities, and social and leisure activities.
People are supported to become more independent by, for example, learning how to run their own households and learning how to drive. Options Bredon House is therefore an ideal service for people who wish to transition into supported or independent living.
We aim to make the sometimes difficult transition to supported living both fulfilling and rewarding. Being committed to the personalisation agenda and following our own person-centred planning approach, choice and control are at the heart of the service Options Bredon House provides. Our aim is to prepare vulnerable people for a happy life of inclusion.
