Free to be Me Enabling Service

We provide Enabling for children and adults with learning difficulties and disabilities and those who suffer with mental health problems in Tiverton and the surrounding areas. We particularly focus on art and craft activities, sensory play, healthy living; including exercise, cooking and baking and getting out in nature and believe in the therapeutic benefits of all of these.

We believe in helping people achieve quality of life by being an active part of their community and by being valued as an individual. Therefore, we offer support to both children and adults to learn the skills they need to manage their lives, all the way up from developing the motor skills needed, learning to interact with others & accessing local events to preparing their meals and managing their own home and finances as well as discovering their own tastes & which hobbies and activities they enjoy as they go through life.

We are able to offer one to one sessions or provide workshops/events for your local group. 

If you have recently been awarded a direct payment and are not sure how to recruit quality support for you or your family member then we could be the solution. We offer a friendly approach so feel free to ask for further details. We are also an approved provider for the Children's Team so can arrange to invoice the council directly if you prefer not to use the direct payment system.

20+ years experience in the field, DBS checked, Business Motor Insurance, Public Liability Insurance.
