More About Our Support
One to One Support
We can offer one to one support with a support worker at a time and location which is suitable for you. One to one support will aim to complete areas of your support plan and provide practical and emotional support in response to your needs and the identified risks.
We can offer a variety of support groups which are facilitated by our staff, and are client led, focusing on the issues you choose. The facilitators use a range of skills, counselling, therapeutic and educational techniques but primarily they encourage members to take responsibility for the group. We also have guest speakers, when the group requests a specific topic, and we have a regular legal representative to address any legal issues raised within the group or individually.
Whilst you are accessing support plan PDVI you will have your own support plan. You and your support worker will be responsible for meeting the actions set in your support plan; actions will be prioritised to address the identified risks and to respond to your support needs.
The support plan is a working document and will be continually reviewed, amended and adapted throughout your support and will remain focused on the identified and current risks and needs. It will always aim to reflect your current circumstances, thoughts and views, needs and goals, even if these have changed.
PDVI will support you to meet the goals that you will set for yourself and you will be given many opportunities to reflect on your journey and understand the changes that have occurred.
