Supported living

Do you have a family member with learning disability who is ready to live an independent life with some support? They might be a young adult leaving school or care services, or a relative looking to expand on their life skills and live within the community.

Life Path Trust provides supported living to people to help them to do things for themselves and supports them to develop to live their life to the full.

Life Path Trust provides Supported Living services in Coventry and Oxfordshire.


What is Supported Living?

We support the person to maintain their tenancy and to live safely in their own home. We support with managing daily life including personal care, food preparation, shopping, taking medicines, accessing healthcare, budgeting and money management.


Is it only about support at home?

The service is much more than just support at home. We support people to keep in touch with their families, access leisure and community activities, volunteering and work opportunities.
We help and support the person to use public transport and travel on their own. We also encourage and support people to engage in their own community safely and as independently as possible.
