types of support available

Here is a list of some of the activities we are currently delivering, however we are constantly developing new activities to meet the needs of the individuals we support:

Independent Living skills: enabling people to develop the skills, however small, that will increase their independence in areas such as mobility, communication, travel, cookery, homes skills, literacy, numeracy and computing.
  Domiciliary Services: providing a personalised service to a range of people with Learning Disabilities. The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of all Health and Social Care in England. They are given powers by the Government to register, monitor and inspect all Health and Social Care services. Read Chrysalis’ Inspection Summary by clicking on the link ‘See the Report’ above.
