FAQs

How can I apply?

You can contact us directly to discuss your interests. We will then arrange a introductory visit for the individual. If you are interested, we will send you out pre-assessment information. We will carry out an assessment at the centre or arrange a residential assessment for specialist or complex needs.


What is a Pre-assessment?

At the Pre-assessment stage we are trying to research information about you so that we may know if able2achieve are able to meet your needs. We would also ask your consent to contact other stakeholders such as your current provider (such as a school or college) so they may also tell us about your needs.


What is an assessment?

In an assessment we have gathered information to find out what difficulties you, or your carer, are having and what sort of help and support you are asking for. At the assessment we are checking that the research we have gathered is accurate.


What happens after the assessment?

The appointed assessor will discuss with the individual the outcome of the assessment, which will highlight the support needs and discuss with you, the services available and the location of these services. Your social worker will take all your needs into careful consideration and speak to you about the best option for you from a range of options.


Is there a charge?

This depends on what funding you receive between you and your social worker. This may depend on how often you attend and your personal circumstances. Your ability to pay will be assessed and you will be advised by your social worker about this. A small charge towards food and refreshments will be charged at the Day Provision.There might be a financial assessment prior to individuals taking up a service. The individual will know this charge before committing to the service.


Can I get help with the cost?

This depends on your personal circumstances. A financial assessment will be carried out and your social worker will let you know what help is available. Any assistance required with meeting the cost of these services will be discussed in your initial assessment.


It's my first time, who will meet me there?

On your first visit you will be introduced to a member of staff who will familiarise you with the centres amenities and facilities. During the visit you will have the opportunity to talk to other service users. A member of staff will support you through this introductory day. You will have plenty of opportunity to discuss any concerns and ask any questions before you make a decision. You will be given contact details of the person(s) meeting you on the day prior to your visit.


I'd like to find out more, who can I talk to?

You can contact our centre where staff will be happy to discuss any questions you have. Our telephone number is 01935 429430.


I want more choice and control

If you want to arrange services and support for yourself, then you might be interested in Self Directed Support. This gives you an Individual Account or Direct Payment which you can use to arrange your own support. You can look after the money yourself or ask the Council to hold the money and help you find the support you need. You can discuss this at the time of your assessment with your social worker.
