Provider Details:

Aspirations Support is a provider of bespoke Supported Living Services, Day services, Community Outreach Services and Supported Holiday Services to people with learning difficulties and/or mental health needs. From our beginnings nearly ten years ago, when we opened our first supported living house, we have steadily grown to a company of over 100 staff delivering these services to over 50 individuals in 16 supported living houses and building based day services.

Aspirations was created by Joe Imber. Joe was working for Bristol City Council as a support worker when he became aware of the need for independent quality care.

We began 11 years ago by finding 2 properties in which we set up a supported living service. Our first service users had moderate learning difficulties and wanted to develop the skills to live independently from their families. We soon found there were many others like them and as our team grew we developed other specialisms, diversifying into supporting those with mental health conditions and also individuals with profound and multiple learning difficulties. We re-structured periodically as we grew, creating opportunities for staff at Senior Support, Team Leader and Manager level. We now have 16 supported living houses, a growing Day Service and a Community Outreach Service. We continue to develop our teams, as well as creating new ones with specialisms in new areas such as substance abuse/dependency and various forms of dual diagnosis (i.e: complex mental health conditions plus learning disability).
