What is a Network?

A Network has up to 10 people in it.  The 10 people live near each other and they are known as network members.

Network members can live in their own home, be looking to move into their own home one day or still live with family but would like to be more independent.  Each network is supported by a Community Living worker who lives in or around the same area.

The support from the Community Living Worker is flexible, this means it's there when members need it and not when they don't.  The proximity of the Community Living Worker means that they are able to intervene prior to a crisis and will identify the need for additional or specialist support quickly.

What does the Community Living Worker do?

The Community Living worker is employed  16 hours a week in the Network.   The Community Living Worker  must  live in the same area as the network  and know all the resources within their communities, they are  professionals as well as a neighbours. The role is to support members to become active citizens.

Community Living workers negotiate with the members when they need support both individually and within the group. The support is responsive and tailored to the individual, this could be day, evenings or weekends.

Members are encouraged  to get on with each other , offer support to each other and develop new skills which can be shared with each other as well as the wider community.

Community Living Worker will help people to understand their responsibilities such as rental agreements and utility bills to ensure peoples homes are not at risk.
