Individual support

Our supported living homes and team enable people to live independently. We can support you to live in your own home or to share with others. You’ll have a say in where you live and who you live with. The focus is on you. We want to make sure that you feel safe, secure, and, most importantly, at home. Nearly all of our homes are small, with 3 to 4 adults sharing, but have their own private room and tenancy through a housing association or private landlord.

Our most recent CQC inspection rated our services as Good.

Day to day support

We provide a range of support based on your needs and aspirations, and we are on hand to help you with all sorts of everyday tasks, like budgeting, cleaning, shopping, cooking, washing, and dressing, and social, cultural and leisure activities. You might have days when you just need a bit of advice or would just like someone to talk to; we’re here for you then, too.

At Alabaré, we love to help you pursue your goals through training, education, employment and hobbies. We offer in-house training opportunities to all of our residents, and if you’re interested, we can help you pursue an NOCN award.

Emmaus House community and chaplain at work

Alabaré Emmaus Community

Founded in 1996 in response to requests from a number of parents who wanted a safe and nurturing place where their adult child could live a life underpinned by Christian faith. The community now comprises several of our Salisbury homes offering long term supported living accommodation.

Each resident makes a commitment to share life together through eating and participating in spiritual development taking it in turns to prepare evening meals, which are then eaten together, and prefaced with prayer.

Our Emmaus Community regularly gather to share in hospitality, worship and the exploration of a bible story or theme eg. Holy Week and Easter.

Alabaré made me believe, that I could achieve things and gave me confidence. 

My life is so much better now, and where I live now, I am accepted and have good neighbours. Alabaré has given me stability so I can do things.  They believed in me.
