Walsingham Support SLNE
Supported living services enable people with a disability to live independently in their own home, with appropriate support to help them manage their own tenancy and achieve greater freedom and control in their lives. Support can be provided in a person’s own house, their flat or in a shared living environment.
The services we provide can range from occasional visits from a support worker, flexible support during the day or in the evening, overnight and/or at weekends, right through to 24 hours a day. Some services might be shared if more than one person with support needs live together, for instance a couple sharing a flat.
Our staff are fully trained and take a person-centred approach to planning and delivering each individual’s support.

- personal care – health and wellbeing, washing, preparing meals, medication

A personal introduction to Walsingham Support
Growing up alongside a younger brother with learning disabilities, I understand the difference good support makes. As a family, we have always strived to ensure that Matthew leads a fulfilling life, fully connected with his friends and family and integrated within the local community. These principles are the bedrock which formed Walsingham Support in 1986 when my father set up the organisation to create a better life for people with disabilities.
Since joining the team in 1992 and becoming CEO in 2005, I have been lucky enough to witness and contribute to key organisational achievements. This has been both a personal and a professional journey and I am very proud of what we have achieved over the past 30 years.
Working with a range of stakeholders including people we support, families, staff, healthcare, employment and housing professionals, has enabled Walsingham Support to make great progress. Working together and sharing our experiences has benefitted the organisation and, fundamentally, created more opportunities for people we support. We have gained a wealth of knowledge and have used this to contribute to the development of the wider health and social care sector across England and Wales.
Our “can do” attitude has enabled us to develop innovative personalised support solutions for individuals with a wide range of disabilities and has ensured that, as an organisation, we remain forward thinking in our approaches.
At Walsingham Support, we take pride in who we are and provide solutions as unique as each individual we support.
