This is a specific short break provision for young adults with learning disabilities in Gateshead, between the ages of 18 and 30.
Kites Rise is a vibrant but homely environment for up to 4 young adults with learning disabilities, to develop the skills they need to live independently, develop social opportunities and spend time with their peers, thus giving their carer a much needed break.
We aim to facilitate friendship groups, support transition planning and provide a stepping stone towards supported living.
We’re flexible – It’s about what you need to help you in your caring role.
Our person centered approach ensures that both you as a carer and the young person you support are the focus of the service provided.
Our Carer Support Workers are trained to NVQ level 2 or 3 in Health and Social Care. They support the person with care needs to access appropriate activities of their choice, following risk assessment, provide practical, personal and specialized care to support the people you care for, allowing you to have that much needed break. For your added security and peace of mind, all of our staff have been checked by the Disclosure and Barring system (DBS).
