Supported Living

Valorum Care Group and its sister companies, Adjuvo and Carmel Care, provide care and support for people with physical disabilities, acquired brain injury, sensory impairment, learning disabilities, autism, and mental health issues, including behaviours that challenge, to live lives they want in their own homes.  We also offer various levels of support for people who have enduring mental health conditions.  

Valorum supported living services aim to support adults and young adults with learning disabilities, mental health issues and behaviours that challenge to live the lives they want in their own homes. We offer supported living services registered with the CQC in the provision of personal care.  We offer various levels of care and support for people who have enduring mental health conditions. In line with Transforming Care, we support people with learning disabilities and associated needs. This can include communication difficulties, autism, epilepsy, and physical disabilities. We support individuals with mild, moderate, and severe behaviours that challenge them. 

The level of support can range from a couple of hours per day to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with one or more support staff. We take a personalised and flexible approach by working to match our service to your needs. This enables us to tailor-make support packages that can be delivered in your own accommodation or shared accommodation. If you have an individual budget or direct payment, we can support you in deciding how best to spend your finances to make sure you can live the life you want. Where appropriate we will also work with your family, friends, advocates, and other professionals to tailor make your unique support package. The result is a plan that reflects your wishes and needs. It helps set the goals and the outcomes you want to achieve. We’ll work with you to regularly review your support plan. This ensures we’re giving you the right level of support to reach your goals. 

We currently operate in Leicestershire, Gloucestershire, Essex, Devon, Cornwall, Southend, and Teesside, but we are expanding into other geographical areas where the need exists.  With the service users’ and or their care teams’ consent, we can refer complex service users to our own Multi-Disciplinary Team of mental health professionals, or we can support them in working closely with their local community mental health or learning disability teams.

By encouraging people to take control and believe in their potential, we can make positive outcomes a reality for everyone, regardless of age or presumed ability. We create pathways that support individuals through residential to community living, delivering measurable outcomes for local authorities and those who use our services. This, paired with our personalisation agenda, enables us to help the people we support to lead fulfilled, independent lives. By working together, we can make a real and lasting difference. 

We work with a few social landlords and housing partners who assist us in finding the right accommodation for individuals needing housing solutions. As a result, we can offer varying levels of support accommodation dependent on individuals’ needs and wishes. We can offer self-contained flats and shared housing with 24-hour support staff availability. We also provide an on-call number for emergencies outside office hours.

Our team will ensure right from the beginning that each service user knows how they will be supported. After the assessment, a Contractual Support Agreement will be drawn between us, the service user, their Social Worker, or the Care Coordinator. Detailed support plans will be drawn up with the full participation of the service users, stating how our team will support them in all aspects of daily life to develop the skills required to live more independently. 

We aim to support adults and young adults with learning disabilities, mental health issues and behaviours that challenge to live the lives they want in their own homes in the community.

Our Approach

We believe that people we support should be supported to have a good and meaningful everyday life.

  • Care and support should be person-centred, planned, coordinated and PROACTIVE.
  • Our service users should have choice and control over how their health needs are met.
  • People with a learning disability and/or autism should be supported to live in the community.
  • People we support should have a choice about where and with whom they live.
  • We train our staff to support service users who present with behaviours that challenge in a personalised way.
