Support as unique as you are

Our purpose at Lifeways is to improve lives - it’s as simple as that. We help almost 5,000 people all across the UK to live with independence in their local community. We support people to discover new hobbies, activities and friendships, spending quality time with like-minded people. And, we pride ourselves on helping each and every one of the people we support to find the confidence and self-belief they need to follow their personal goals and dreams.

How do we achieve this? By offering a truly personalised approach in everything that we do. Our support is always tailored around each person’s likes, dislikes and ambitions. And we build support plans in partnership with each person’s family and support networks, keeping everyone involved and informed, because we know how important it is for the people we support to stay connected with the people they care about most.

About our support

“I’m really proud of my achievements. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support of my Lifeways support team who believed in me all the way. Now I also believe in myself.”

For commissioners and professionals

As a commissioner or care professional you can refer to Lifeways with confidence. Every one of our support workers are working towards or have achieved the Care Certificate qualification, and more than 88% of our supported living locations are rated good or outstanding by the CQC. That puts us well above average in our sector.

More for professionals

"I am so pleased and immensely relieved to see my clients out of a nursing home and into supported living. Already they are much happier and going out every day. This will transform their lives for the better."
