The organisation was established in April 2001 to provide domiciliary care services to older people, and adults and children with disabilities. The Service Users needs are thoroughly assessed before they are assigned a Homecare Worker and a care plan and a support plan is devised. Our staffs are well placed to meet the particular cultural, religious and ethnic needs of those who use the service.
The Registered Manager will visit each prospective Service User to discuss their needs and provide additional information. Sahara strives to ensure that every Service User is cared for by staffs that share similar cultural, linguistic and religious backgrounds. Their cultural and religious needs are also taken into account for example if they only eat halal food or need to be visited by a Homecare support worker of the same gender.

We can accept direct contact from potential service-users. We also accept referrals from Social Services and health practitioners (and from schools).
We do not operate a system of eligibility criteria and our service is available to all, subject to the service-user being funded (including private funding) and to a support plan being devised in conjunction with the lead practitioner.
Our key purpose is to provide a service which meets the requirements of the service-user as closely as possible, aiming at the provision of an independent lifestyle in adulthood. We match the carers to the service-user’s preferences (linguistic, cultural, social, religious, and also as to age and gender), so that the service-user is enabled to live as independently as possible, supported by a support plan which is of their choice.
We work within specific support plans which address their needs by setting measurable, achievable and relevant targets which are regularly reviewed internally and with other professionals. A child’s package is normally reviewed every 6 – 8 weeks, as well as in response to changing needs.
We work in line with guidelines set by Early Years to meet the following outcomes: communication and language, physical development, personal social and emotional development, literacy, maths, understanding the world and expressing art and design. The aim is for the service-user to be enabled as far as possible to understand the world and integrate into the society in which they live.
Activities are matched to those provided by service-users’ schools or daycare centres or as indicated by social services in order to maintain the same regime outside those care provision hours.
There is no limitation on support as long as it is in line with agreed care package and ongoing support is provided such as visits to gym or swimming pool, ensuring a healthy diet/lifestyle, and accompanying service-user to social, community or leisure activities.
