Active Support Model

The Active Support Model is designed specifically to ensure people who we support have the opportunity to be fully involved in their lives, while receiving the right range and levels of support to ensure they are successful. This outcomes focussed tool  allows monitoring of progress towards maximised participation.

Our services encourages each person to be involved in every aspect of their life, through carefully planned interventions and mentoring, enabling skill development. Our person-centred approach has led people to fully engage in their review process while making positive life changes based on their person-centred profiles.

The active support model plan involves aspects such as:

  • The plan is flexible
  • The plan considers what is involved in the daily running of the house (providing opportunity for participation
  • Consideration of each individual’s current routine
  • Identifying the core activity and support plan for the house for the week
  • Using plans on a daily basis
  • Monitoring regularly – Active Support Participation Record
  • Writing plans in performance terms
  • Identifying opportunities to target specific skills
  • Teamwork and consistency across the staff team is essential
  • Build in regular reviews
