Independence Plus - Supported Living options

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 to the family 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 future. Many clients are in education, voluntary work or paid employment not linked to QAC directly.

Funding is usually provided through a Direct Payment Personal Budget in conjunction with housing benefit for accommodation. This service is available for people aged 18-30 years. We provide support to transition on into life-long living support options with other providers. 

What the students say

QAC is a good place to be and I'd recommend the College to anyone thinking about attending.
