What Is Living Plus?

Living Plus is a service within MASH Trust which provides day activity programs for people with an intellectual disability.

Living Plus provides its community-based service Monday to Friday between the hours of 9am and 4pm.

Each service team is lead by an experienced Team Leader who reports to the Service Manager.

We Believe that:

  • People with disabilities have the right to full community participation and inclusion.
  • All people have the ability to learn and develop over their lifetime.
  • Every person can fulfil a valued role in society.
  • Services should be built around and be responsive to individual need.
