People with a learning disability and their family carers often struggle to find the right social care service for them.

They know how they want to be supported to live their life but can’t find a service to meet their needs, wishes and expectations.

For people who want more choice and control over the support they need to live their life to the full, this is an ideal option.

The service works by helping people to use Self-Directed Support to design, organise and purchase their own services to meet their individual preferences and lifestyle goals.

Some people need lots of help to turn their dreams into reality. Others need just a little advice and guidance to get them started.

With support from Watford Mencap, people can set up a life that really works for them and where they are in control.
