Our team

We work for Portsmouth City Council. Our team is made up of Occupational therapists and support staff.

Occupational therapists help people to develop, recover and improve, as well as maintain any skills needed for independent living after a period of illness, injury or change in functional ability.

The team’s support workers directly assist with the rehabilitation programs under the guidance and direction of the therapists.

What we do

This service is for people over 18 who live in Portsmouth and want to gain more independence in their day-to-day lives.

Our aim is to support you to improve your day-to-day skills and to learn new ones to support you to live the life you want, as independently as possible.

Whilst we do not have set timescales, an average rehabilitation program is between 6-12 weeks.

What to expect from the team

We will visit you at your home to introduce our service and talk about your personal goals. We will then make a plan together to support you to work towards these goals.

We may introduce you to our independent living support workers to support with your goals.

We may also signpost you to other people and organisations, if you would like this, who we feel could support you in the long term.
