The Helping Hands Group

The Helping Hands Group provide a service for adults with learning and associated disabilities that offers a range of work skills/education/therapies and leisure based opportunities, focused on outcomes, achievements and independence.

The key purpose of the service is to provide a safe and inclusive environment to support young adults with learning/associated disabilities to develop their independence skills. From the onset the individual is assessed to see what skills they have and what area/levels of support they require to achieve their required outcomes. There are no time limits of when a person can attend the service, we provide a service from the age of 18+. Packages can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual and we pride ourselves on our ability to be flexible where necessary.

Other Details

Costs

Details
Costs apply to attend the service and these differ depending on the type of service/support required. They are calculated on an individual basis. The person responsible for payment will be invoiced on a monthly basis. This can either be paid directly into our bank account (preferred option)/cash/cheque. Once an initial assessment has been undertaken by the manager and agreed time frame can then be worked towards the person starting the service, this will be dependent on staffing requirements: for example if the young person requires 1:1 support, supplied by THHG we will need time for the recruitment and training process to take place.
