Support for young adults with a learning disability

We’re committed to giving young adults with a learning disability the support you need to be as independent as you want. We want you to have choice and control over how you live your life. And we’ll be with you every step of the way, so you can live a safe and happy life.

Why choose support from Agincare?

We work hard to help each person live life as they choose. It’s about living life with the same choice, rights and responsibilities as other citizens.

Our passionate and committed support workers are highly-trained. They have a wealth of experience in supporting young adults with a learning disability, including:

  • Helping with bathing and dressing
  • Reducing anxiety and helping to solve problems
  • Helping you stay in touch with family and friends
  • Getting you the right information so you can make choices
  • Supporting you with everyday tasks, such as menu planning, cleaning and budgeting

We’ve been supporting people with learning disabilities for many years. So we know that you may need help with some of these things:

  • Understanding information and instructions
  • Making decisions
  • Thinking about what might happen
  • Learning new skills
  • Making new friends

We know there are certain things that could help you feel more confident about what you can do to achieve your goals, like:

  • Setting up routines
  • Using simple communication
  • Using pictures, calendars, charts and simple lists
  • Having the time to understand
  • Making changes one step at a time
