We're a family owned company and have been providing care and support services since 2003. Although we've grown significantly over the years and now employ over 160 staff, we strive to maintain the family values we've always had within the company, and firmly believe all our employees should have a voice and feel part of a team.
We understand that the people we support are all individuals and might require several different kinds of support – whether it’s help with developing and maintaining daily living and independence skills, support with personal care or just wanting company or opportunities to develop confidence and experience new things.
At JRH Support we provide a person-centred approach to support, and always spend time getting to know people and their individual needs and preferences before matching the right Support Workers and the right kind of support.
We strongly believe in people being in control of their support, and supporting them to identify outcomes that are important to them and are both achievable and measurable. This can help develop basic life skills, confidence and independence, and ensure people are able to reach their full potential.
Whatever you need, whether it’s support for just a couple of hours a week or for 24 hours a day, we can always help.
Where it all began...
The 'JRH' in JRH Support are the initials of our founder – John Richard Huthwaite.
When John’s young family were growing up, he and his wife Bogusia welcomed two adults with a learning disability into their home to live with them and their family under a scheme called the Adult Placement Scheme (now called Shared Lives).
Over the years, John and Bogusia supported them to live life to the full, to take part in social and leisure activities and to develop their independence skills and confidence.
Eventually, John and his family moved house and 2 more adults with a learning disability moved into the property where he had previously lived. John and a small team of staff then supported these 4 people in our first supported living project.
We continued to set up more supported living projects over time, and then started to provide other care services all across Nottingham too. We now support nearly 400 people – not just people with a learning disability but people with a wide variety of care and support needs.
OUR CORE VALUES
We act in a way that shows we care about people’s feelings, beliefs, values and well-being. We treat all people with consideration and courtesy and relate to them in ways that show we value their views and priorities.
We understand that it can be pretty daunting trying to find good quality care and support for yourself or for someone you know, but we're very confident that the supported living and outreach services we provide are of the highest quality - and we're really proud of what people say about us.
We are approved care and support providers for both Nottingham City Council and Notts County Council. This means that we have gone through very strict quality audit processes to demonstrate that we are well managed and provide high quality support.
