We are Look Ahead.

We will meet you before you start with us. You can bring a friend, family member or anyone else with you.

Staff from Look Ahead will talk to you and ask you questions. This is called an assessment.

We want you to be safe and happy with Look Ahead.

You can visit Look Ahead before you move in.

We will talk to you about what you want to do and what you need help with.

Support means working together to help you.

Support is different for different people. Support is always about helping people to be independent.

Sometimes support is going to new places.

Sometimes support is helping with shopping and cooking.

It is important you work with us so we can give you the support you need.
