Welcome to Flexible Support Options

Flexible Support Options (FSO) has been providing high quality person centred Flexible support since 1996.

FSO is part of a family owned group of companies based across England with its Head Office in the North East of England. Being part of this larger group of companies enables us to work with our partner property company to offer you Flexible housing options, specific to your requirements, through a tenancy agreement.

We are able to offer support to anyone who has an identified support need relating to a learning disability, mental health issues, forensic histories, physical disability, sensory disability, autism, aspergers syndrome, behavioural challenges, acquired brain injury or other complex care or support need.

We can support you:

  • through a period of transition
  • to maximise opportunities within your community
  • to find and maintain your own home through a tenancy
  • to develop new skills, confidences and self-esteem
  • to promote your independence
  • to attend college and gain qualifications
  • to develop a social enterprise
  • to take a holiday or short break
  • to find work
  • to manage your direct payment/individual payment
  • in a culturally sensitive way.

We can do this within your own home, your family home, at school, college or place of work, in one of our short break facilities, within one of our supported living facilities or residential services. We can offer you support from 1 hour per week to 24 hours a day every day. Our philosophy is to work with you in a person centred way along with the people who are important in your life to provide ‘just enough’ support to enable you to maintain your existing skills, develop new ones and increase your confidence and independence, reducing your dependence on paid support.

We do this by working with you and the people who are important to you, to develop a Person Centred Plan where we agree what is important and how our flexible support will be delivered to enable you to meet your needs and wishes, keeping you safe and realising your choices to have the life you want.
