Care Forum (MK) Ltd

Care Forum is a Home Support Service for Children and Young People with a Physical or Learning Disability and their families providing support either in their own homes or in the community. We provide carers with a break from the caring role and give them time for other family members.

We enable young people to participate in community activities and integrate into society, enabling them to gain independence and social skills to fulfill their potential. We offer support to families in the day to day care of their children where extra help is needed such as morning or evening routines, mealtimes, personal care and health care needs. We support children in school settings and assist with managing behaviours.

We offer overnight and weekend care in the child's own home to enable parents to sleep or take a short break away. We accompany parents on day trips if additional help is needed.

Sessions range from an hour to help with routines, 3 or 4 hours in the community to an evening sit or taking a child on holiday for a week.
