They also encourage individuals to be active in their local community and the service has its own transport and good links to local public transport. The focus is on providing opportunities and choices and helping people try new things.
Some individuals have joined a local football team and play in tournaments and others enjoy educational courses at The Kettering Centre. The team have strong links with local charity shops offering opportunities for voluntary work placements.
Many activities take place within the service such as board games, computer games and planning and cooking meals from different cultures.

“The staff here are brilliant. I couldn’t fault them.”Supported Individual – Quote from CQC Inspection Report - March 2019
“We used to have a pay phone here [in the hallway] and everyone could hear us when we were on the phone. But our beloved manager got us this [a cordless phone] so we can take it to our bedrooms and we can have private conversations if we want without everyone listening to us.”Supported Individual – Quote from CQC Inspection Report - March 2019

“We speak honestly about food. We talk about the things that need to be talked about, and it helps to promote their independence for when people are eating out. Food is everywhere so it’s important we don’t try to shield them from it.”Consensus Colleague – Quote from CQC Inspection Report - March 2019
“Individuals values, beliefs and backgrounds are recognised and their ethnicity, religious and cultural beliefs are embraced and celebrated.

“We review our own performance and reflect on what we’re doing well or where we could improve. It helps you think, and then the managers review how you’re getting on.

“My service user has been extremely well supported and as a result is making good progress with their goals… The service users all seem happy and are keen to talk about their achievements whenever I visit.”Healthcare Professional – Quote from CQC Inspection Report - March 2019
