Support Horizons is a community owned, user-led social enterprise providing social care. Support Horizons work with people across Berkshire to help them live the lives they choose. Support Horizons offer creative and flexible support that's as varied as the many people that use it. From a few hours per week, to 24 hours a day, they can provide support that's designed by you, to meet the needs of your life. Support Horizons work closely with local authorities and community, which helps them let you know what's out there - whether it's the support you need to live independently, help to do your shopping or start a new hobby, they can help. Whatever your needs, and your budget, Support Horizons will work with you to help you find the most suitable support. They can help you select your staff, plan your support schedule and help you come up with ideas of how to get the most from your budget. We aim to provide flexibility - so you can make changes and make sure your support enhances your life, not limits it.
