LIVE Promoting Independence

"Angela said she is having a really good year this year.  So pleased with staff who are giving her clear guidance so that she knows where she is"

LIVE – Learning, Independence, Volunteering and Employment

LIVE is a day centre for adults with learning disabilities and or physical disabilities in Northamptonshire specifically designed to support and encourage customers to live independently, find paid employment, or volunteer in the community.

We know that everyone that joins us is an individual and we make sure we spend the time to listen closely to their needs so together we can create a plan that works.

For you the LIVE programme might be a journey, helping you to decide what you want to do and supporting you to build the skills you need to get there, taking each task step by step from increasing your confidence to CV writing.

 

Support to Independence

At LIVE we are outcome seekers with a shared goal of helping you, the individual, to achieve your independence.

With the help of assistive technology, the possibilities of achievements are even more possible than ever before.
Enabling travel training in a secure and trained environment encourages the individual to be confident and independent.

For more information about how Travel Training can assist you or your loved one please contact 01604 362292 or email sales@nass.uk.net.  The Northamptonshire LIVE team are highly trained and skilled with all learning and physical disabilities, all you need to do is locate your nearest branch and we will do the rest.
