Options West Sussex provide services to adults with a diagnosis of Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome in their own homes, in education or day placements, in paid or voluntary employment and in the community. We also deliver services in association with West Sussex County Council as part of My Network and My Network Plus.

  • We provide help, support and advice in accessing accommodation
  • We facilitate individuals to move on within the service (from residential care to supported living, or from one type of accommodation to another)
  • We enhance inclusion within the community
  • We offer a flexible service, from two hours per week to assist with budgeting for example, or up to 24-hour support, 7 days a week
  • We support individuals to learn all the necessary independent living skills such as cooking, cleaning, budgeting, shopping for food, clothing or new furniture, booking holidays, helping them with their finances, paying bills, making appointments and reading letters
  • We also support them at day centres with activities including gardening and wood work
  • We support, empower and encourage individuals to take an active part in their community and access mainstream leisure pursuits and interests, as well as encouraging families to join in. This includes meals out, trips to the cinema or theatre, swimming, going to the gym, horse riding, etc
  • We offer support to access day centres, colleges or adult education classes, or supported employment where appropriate
  • We listen to the individual and significant others and design a personalised, flexible service which is tailored to meet individual needs and can be adapted over time

“Staff spoke kindly and respectfully to people, involving them with the care provided. Staff had developed meaningful relationships with people they supported. Staff knew people well and had a caring approach. People were treated with dignity and respect.”
