Freeways are a charity that has been running since 1987 providing residential care and other services.

Over the years their services have changed to meet the needs of the local community, the individuals we support and the local council and government. We provide residential care / support in our homes in North Somerset, Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Bath and North East Somerset.

They provide support for up to 115 people across North Somerset, Bristol and South Gloucestershire in accommodation based services and also individuals in their own homes and a small number of respite placements in South Gloucestershire.

They also run other types of services including community day services, building based day services, hydrotherapy and warm water sessions in our own hydrotherapy pool, support to become self-employed or look for employment, and support living.

"The aim of our service is to help people become as independent as possible by helping them make choices, learn new skills and make new links in their local community.

We provide services for people with learning disabilities across Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Bath and North East Somerset.

We have over 30 years of experience; we started as a charity in 1987 and our charity status further cements our values that we firmly believe that every penny we get should be for the benefit of the people we support to ensure they have the best lives possible.

We work closely with our main landlord, Freeways Trust, and currently manage 8 residential homes all registered with CQC. These are shared homes for between 7 and 14 people across the whole area we work. Freeways Trust also rent shared houses and flats to adults with a learning disability directly and we support those individuals to manage their tenancies and reach their potential.

We liaise with other professionals to ensure we all work together to support people as individuals, helping them to have a voice and support others to listen.

We strongly believe that all people should live a life that is free from abuse and we work closely with a number of the local safeguarding adults boards to ensure the voices of people with learning disabilities are central to the work they do."
