A private enabling support provider for people with learning disabilities, mental health or drugs and alcohol problems.
A Day Centre unit for people with learning disabilities, mental health or drugs and alcohol problems.
We are registered with CQC for personal care services.
The Company was founded in October 2008 and is owned and managed by Neville and Rachel Phillips.
We are a supported living provider offering support for adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs. We also provide enabling support and respite to adults living at home with their families. Support is available for anyone aged 18 or over and we will assist with the transition from children's services to adult services.
Supported living is an alternative to residential care in that it provides support and accommodation to people who are assessed as eligible for these services. The difference is that in Supported Living, the housing provider and support provider should be separate and the Service User has the option to choose where they live, who they live with and the type of accommodation.
Kazlum Support Ltd works hard to provide a well managed service that offers a future to those who need it. As a provider our aim is to provide high quality support options to adults with learning disabilities living in Exeter and Mid Devon based on ordinary life principles. We aim to be able to see individuals gain self respect, independence and confidence as well as new skills, education and work prospects that are manageable and at a level comfortable for each individual.
We pride ourselves in the services we offer and this opportunity is for individuals as long as they need it without the restrictions of time. We have extremely high standards and our ethos is that, 'if it's not good enough for us, then it's not good enough for our Service Users.'
We believe in working closely with people with learning disabilities and all significant family members and friends. We plan services around an individual’s needs and aspirations, using Person Centered Planning. We will not fit a person to a service!
Our Company motto is, 'Your Life, your Choice'. We consult our Service Users in decision-making at all times regardless of level of disability, and we enable them to be fully involved throughout the whole process. Where people cannot advocate for themselves we value the role of their family, friends and advocate.
Person centre planning puts the person at the centre of a planning process and gives the power to them. It provides an effective way to listen and respond to people and it involves learning about what people want from their lives. The plan can help people decide what they want now and in the future. This does not mean they have to do things on their own, it means other people that they like and trust supports them in the way they choose.
We will, wherever possible, ensure that any activities requiring support will be carried out and shared with others in the local community. Whenever possible we will support people to make new friends outside of the home.
As a Company we are committed to providing the following;
- Staffing to meet the needs of services users 365 days a year
- 24 hour on call support service
- Support from a few hours a week, up to 24 hours a day, depending on the assessed needs of the service user.

To help us achieve and surpass the above requirements, we have a team of dedicated, experienced and qualified staff, that all have many years of experience and training in working with adults and children with different disabilities.
We work hard to ensure we recruit the 'right person' for the Support Worker role, as we expect and promote very high standards from all of our staff, to ensure that they deliver a high quality of support to all our service users.
