Out and About Support
Out and About Support is a service which I set up to help adults of all ages and abilities to to access any community facilities they want to. Out and About Support provides a Support Worker/Personal Assistant with a car who will take to anywhere you choose to go. The car is fully accessible for wheelchair users.
Out and About Support operates in Staffordshire (Lichfield, Tamworth and surrounding areas) and the Sutton Coldfield area of Birmingham.
Out and About Support is not a taxi service; it offers far more than transport. An experienced Support Worker takes things at your pace to help you access places where you want to go and take part in activities you want to do. I take people shopping, to visit friends and relatives, to places of their choice for lunch or anything else they want to do.

- Other notes
I am a qualified social worker and have have spent over 30 years in social care and social work services. Most of my experience has been work with adults of all ages and abilities including older people, people living with dementia, people with physical and learning disabilities, and people with mental heath issues.
I have Enhanced DBS clearance so please see me as a 'safe pair of hands' I set up Out and About Support because I struggled to find services like it for my clients when I was a social worker. Taxis are useful but they drop you and go; I stay with you or your loved ones to assist with activities of your/their choice. Family members and friends are welcome to come too.
For me this is more than a job; it is something that I really enjoy doing because I enjoy helping people do what they want to.
