About Us

We are a support agency in Bristol for vulnerable people. We support you to live your life your way.

Yourwaybristol started in 2009 when a group of adults with learning difficulties who were unhappy with their care decided to make a change...

They approached an advocacy service to discuss their options. They decided to use Direct Payments to pay for their care, enabling them to choose their support workers. From there, Yourwaybristol was born. Today, we support people across Bristol to live independently. The ethos of how we started is still at the very heart of our support today, namely ‘choice and control’.

"My strong belief is that people with learning difficulties should have the same rights, choices and control as the rest of society and that is why I started YourwayBristol in 2009.

I started my career working with children with learning difficulties from ethnically diverse families. My role was to support them to gain access to education. I also worked for an advocacy organisation providing adults with learning difficulties with accessible information to promote rights, choices and control. I carried on this work, working with young adults in the USA and then Australia. Coming back to the UK, I worked as a community support worker. Using my experience, I worked with adults with learning difficulties to get them direct payments so that they could choose the support they wanted. Since then, I've invested my time and completed my QCF in levels 3 and 5. "
