Community Enabling

We provide assistance, guidance and support to individuals to connect with their local community, integrate with society, access activities and manage daily living tasks. We focus on enabling children, young people and adults to develop their confidence, skills and abilities to live an independent life where possible.

As an enabling service, our objective is to make daily life easier, more manageable and to reduce any anxiety. It is well-documented that day-to-day tasks and activities can be overwhelming and challenging. In essence, we aim to develop a relationship with the individual and identify any sensory needs, behavioural strategies or coping mechanisms to reduce any potential anxiety, distress and behaviours that may challenge. Brighter Enabling has strong beliefs in applying a holistic and person-centred approach to ensure the needs of the individual are well met. We aim to create a low demanding environment as possible in which people have the most efficient opportunity to build their confidence and self-esteem and to achieve their desired outcomes.
