The details: we have 23 residential services in Bristol and South Gloucestershire (including three nursing homes and two respite services). We support around 200 people from 18-96 years old with everything from advocacy to Zumba, bike riding to personal care, medication to growing gooseberries. In truth, no two people and no two days are the same. We pride ourselves not just on being safe and caring, but also on responding quickly and effectively. Our staff have the skills and experience to make sure that when we’re supporting, for example, Fred who has Down’s Syndrome and early signs of dementia or 18-year old Zack with autism and ADHD, we can offer each an individual package of support tailored to their exact needs and ambitions.
We held a ‘Your Vote’ hustings (a meeting at which candidates in an election address potential voters) with three local candidates from the Labour, Liberal Democrat and Green parties. Watch the video we made from the hustings to hear what they had to say.
