What we do

The Community Care and Support Service is open to individuals over the age of 18 years known to the Community Mental Health Team, who have a mental health problem and who need support to maintain their day to day community living in their own home.

The service provides support, assistance and guidance, enabling the individual to carry out daily living activities whilst encouraging and supporting the person to live independently in the community.

The service offers one-to-one support in the client’s own home. Clients are supported to achieve their individually chosen goals as part of their own recovery support plan.

We facilitate a variety of activities, including WRAP courses, alternative therapies and healthy eating sessions. The support workers can support clients if they would like to become involved in MindWise’s volunteering opportunities.

We also offer practical support, including help with budgeting, assistance with shopping and welfare support.
