My Life – My Service

At My Life, we are dedicated to helping you to live your life – your way. We want to celebrate who you are and help you to use all your talents.
We recognise your disability but we also see your abilities and believe you are a valuable citizen who has a voice just like everyone else.
We want to promote, enable and empower you and our other residents to live as independently as possible, safely with positive risk-taking opportunities.
We will recognise and provide supports that you require with sensitivity, compassion and with the highest quality delivery of care.
All of our houses are located in the north east. Each one is homely and in the heart of a local community.
Your service will be built around your needs and be personalised to you.
We help you to make choices and we will always respect what you wish to do in a way that supports you to live your life, your way.
We will help you to play your part in the local community, by doing the things that make you happy and fulfilled.
