Balance Travel Training
Balance’s Travel Training Programme has been designed to support young people aged 11-19 years with a special educational need, accessing locally provided transport services, to travel to and from school independently. Our mission is to enable young people to become fully independent and confident, while gaining the necessary skills to travel safely between their home and place of study.
Balance Supported Living specialises in supporting adults with learning disabilities to live in their own homes within the borough of Kingston.
Our aim is to promote independence, rights and choices with all aspects of a persons daily living needs. Our objective is to support people to realise their potential, their ambitions and to live safe and fulfilling lives.
We currently support over 80 people in a variety of person centred support packages ranging from 2 hrs to 40 hrs a week. We are a well established passionate support team of 35 staff that work all the year round – this includes a 24 hr emergency on call service.
The workplace mediation service has grown out of our core business of supporting people experiencing difficulties in the work place. It complements Balance’s mission by promoting harmony in the workplace and sustainable employment.
Balance Community Activities offers opportunities for people with learning disabilities to use their personal budgets to learn and develop skills in catering and gardening.
