The aim of Sutton Support Services has always been to provide adults with learning disabilities with the opportunity to learn new skills and activities designed to encourage each person to reach their true potential, to enhance their community opportunities, life and social skills. We pride ourselves on taking a holistic approach to working with people with learning difficulties and their families.
It is for this reason we are becoming respected within the local community and with Social Workers alike, we have gained reputation for actively promoting community involvement, through the Social Enterprise Projects we offer. Each one has been designed to improve or enhance employment, income generation and volunteering opportunities.
Throughout the week we provide support to over 40 people, from a mild learning disability to complex care. Our small team now consists of 12 people working throughout the week in addition three visiting supporters; an aromatherapist, a massage and relaxation therapist, and a podiatrist, as well as an active group of volunteers.
We have always been involved in the training of new Social Workers and Psychology students mostly through Birmingham University, providing direct observation and case study modules of their training. We also provide opportunities for young people to gain work experience during their last year in school.
Providing a Foundation for Personal Growth
At Sutton Support Services we actively promote community involvement, to this end there are a number of Social Enterprise Projects on offer throughout Sutton Coldfield, each one designed to improve or enhance employment opportunities, income generation and volunteering opportunities. Throughout the year participants make and sell items made in our workshops.
