Compass Support, the charitable subsidiary of The Pioneer Group, has launched a free drop-in “Independent Living Support” service at Falcon Lodge Community Hub, to provide guidance and support services to local adults.
Aimed at residents over the age of 18 living independently in Falcon Lodge, the service provides support to enable individuals and couples to remain living in their own homes. This includes guidance and support with managing their own household, developing relationships and improving health & wellbeing.
Support is provided for six months to allow time for service-users in vulnerable situations to build resilience and develop practical skills to cope with issues including wellness, debt and benefits.
