Our support services are offered with a sense of community in mind, when you join us you will have:

  • Access to Sarah Truman our lead Yoga Therapist & Recovery Coach via whatsapp &/or email. Sarah will be your main point of contact for booking & organising your supports.

 

  • Your own Support Leader, this will be the person who you spend most of your support time with working towards your goals either at home or in the community. They will keep your support crew up to date with all relevant information so you don’t need to repeat your self again & again. Your Support Leader will be responsible for helping you track your goals & will ensure you have felt heard & listen to every step of the way. 

 

  • Your own Support Crew  - Your crew stay linked in via our care app to ensure that you remain empowered with choice every step of the way. If your Support Leader is not available for a shift you know that a familiar face from your Support Crew will be there ready to support (with your approval of course).  

 

Your Support Crew is all about supporting you live your life - your way. You might support you with specific projects or goals for example: To help you start a veggie garden, go horse riding, rock climbing, do a weekly meal prep, try ice skating, join a gym or art class. These might be things that your Support Leader isn’t the best person for & instead they can match you with someone on our team who will be.
