Designed to fit around those ‘one-off’ events that you may decide you want to go to or to help with covering a holiday, our buddy service is here to support you in having the choice of being able to go to an event without worrying about booking agencies or taking your parents! We aim to support all individuals to increase independence, boost self-confidence, support with travel training as well as supporting you to be more confident out in the community.
We know that getting out & about isn’t always easy – that’s why we are here to support you in getting out & enjoying yourself! Whether it’s nightclubbing, shopping, cinema or a visit to the library – wherever you want to go we are here to support you all the way! Our Buddy Service is flexible & designed to fit around you (subject to availability). We work all hours – so if you’re wanting to stay out until 3am at the pubs or an early start at the gym – if we have the hours available, we can be there! We can also offer support to cover times when those who usually support you are away or are temporarily unable to offer the level of support you require (e.g. family holidays etc). There is no need for a contract (although we do charge a minimum of 3.5hours per booking) – we work as and when you need us and you are not required to sign up to any commitment!
The current rate of support is £12.50phr. Contact us for more details. T&C’s available on request.
*Please note: we are not able to provide support with personal care or administering medication*
The Buddy Service is available for occasional support as and when needed rather than for regular weekly support as availability can vary from week to week. Please book early to avoid disappointment!
