Brief description of what services your organisation offers:
The Rose Road Association has been working with disabled children and young people in Hampshire for over 60 years. Our family centred approach to the Sitting and Community Based Support Services will enable children and young people to spend quality time at home, or in the community, whilst parents and carers have some quiet time or spend time with siblings. Our Coordinator will come and visit you first to understand your needs and learn more about your child or young person, we will then carefully match your child to a skilled and trained support worker. We will support your child/young person to choose activities and provide safe and friendly support that will make a positive difference to you and your family.
