3D Community Support
In Brighton and Hove
3D Opening Doors
Circles Network have launched a new and exciting way of supporting people who want an alternative to conventional support services - 3D Community Support
Circles Network have been involved in driving the creation and implementation of a new system of social care, in which people will control their own support, their own money and their lives as valued citizens.This system is called Self-Directed Support.
“First and foremost, Self-Directed Support is about people having control over their lives. To have that overall control, people need more control over their money and support.” In Control (June 2008)
3D Community Support has been designed specifically to empower individuals and families to understand what they are entitled to and how to take as much control as they want!
3D provides flexible and highly individual support to help people create and implement a tailored Support Plan that works for them. Our support includes:
- Person Centred Planning and Life Coaching
- Building a Circle of Support
- Developing social networks and local community opportunities
- Empowerment to Employment training
- Support to access community based services and facilities
- Developing life and relationship skills to increase interdependence
- Support with advocacy
The move to personalised individual budgets is a great opportunity to promote the values of inclusion that guide our work, for individuals to take control of their lives and for local authorities to streamline their services and be at the cutting edge of building sustainable communities.
We want to hear from local authorities and trusts that are keen to explore how we can create partnerships to offer people wider choices of support and from people who are looking to take more control of their own life.
Circles Network’s experience of creative and flexible, person centred thinking and working in partnership with individuals, families, services and local authorities mean we are ideally placed to provide personalised support. Our experience is vast, working in neighbourhoods across the UK and with people of all ages and challenges.
