You are welcome to bring your own personal assistant / support worker with you.
You will not be able to use the service if you are obviously ill. Your parents/carers will be requested to pick you up and take you home, or if you live independently we will help you to get home. In the event of serious injury or collapse, an ambulance will be called for you. If hospital treatment is required, a member of staff will accompany you to hospital and stay with you until your parents/carers can support you there. For this reason it is extremely important that you update us with any changes of personal information, mobile numbers etc.
