Outreach

Delivered in Coleraine, Portrush & Portstewart, our outreach provision offers service users the opportunity to live independently in their own home.

Our Outreach Service exists to meet the needs of service users who are able to live independently in their own accommodation but who perhaps need just a little help or support with certain elements of daily living. We can help with a wide variety of needs ranging from budgeting, menu planning & shopping, meal preparation & cooking, general household management and other social integration orientated support. 

Front Door

As the service is delivered on a prescribed 'per hour' basis, the package can be as big or as small as needs require. Likewise, moving from a more dependent service to thisoutreach service might require a gradual approach, where support hours are significant at the beginning of the package, but are gradually reduced as needs are met and as the service user becomes more confident and settled in the new environment. This period also allows for assessment as well as support so that everyone can be sure that there are no unacceptable risks. 

As part of the service, we also provide an 'on call' support which means that each service user knows that help and support is only a telephone call away. 

We operate this service from our base on the Portstewart Road in Coleraine. Therefore, the closer the person lives to our base, the quicker we are able to respond in the event of an emergency. That said, we provide this service throughout Coleraine, Portrush and Portstewart. 

The Outreach Service is charged at £20.00 per hour with a fixed price for sleep-in duty (between 11:00pm and 7:00am) of £45.00. Transport provision can also be put in place at £0.415 per mile. We do not charge any additional management, administration or report writing fees. 

To make an enquiry, use the contact us page, email Tony Dunlop, Fairways General Manager, or give us a call.
