Independent Services

We offer a range of services which empower people with disabilities and long term illnesses to lead independent lives. We do this through providing direct payments – helping people take control of their personal care – and delivering the national Access to Work programme – supporting people with disabilities to remain in work. We also support carers of all ages through our Carers Hub in Stoke and Staffordshire offering personalised information, advice and guidance.

We want to provide an excellent platform to promote future joint working opportunities, highlight the positive work which takes place across all our regions and strengthen those existing relationships already in place with key specialist intervention partners and community organisations.

It was a pleasure and joy to be involved in such a successful health event which I feel was very effective in enabling service users to gain information and raise awareness of the local services and support available for them. It was very well organised and run – so very well done!
