Independence Plus

Some students choose to move onto our Independence Plus programme when they reach the end of their course.

Independence Plus was developed because we identified a need to sustain the independence that people were developing while at QAC. You may have gained really useful living skills during your time at College and so it might make sense for you to continue to develop this independence rather than return home.

Clients on this programme still need support and the aim is to deliver a service that provides you with the means to live independently/semi independently into the distant future.

Funding is usually provided through a Direct Payment Personal Budget in conjunction with housing benefit for accommodation. This service is available to people aged 18-65 years.


What the students say

QAC has helped me to be more independent. I have made so many friends here and receive lots of support from staff but most importantly, we all have lots of fun!
