Whatever support you need to help you live life the way you choose – whether it’s for just a couple of hours a week, or 24 hours a day – our team will be happy to work with you. We provide support to adults across Devon with autistic spectrum disorders, learning disabilities and/or mental health concerns. We believe in listening to the people we support and empowering individuals to make their own choices about how they live their lives, from finding a job to where they live. Our Services can be funded privately, by using a direct payment or if eligible by Devon County Council.

We understand the problems that disability and long-term ill health can bring and we have experienced staff to support and encourage you to prepare for a job – every step of the way. What’s more, through our person centred approach we treat every individual as unique and offer guidance to all. Building upon your stengths and work ambitions whilst focussing on jobs right from the start, we offer individually tailored training, development, support and nationwide employment opportunity programmes so that you can achieve your goals.

  5. What is TRANSITIONS? TRANSITIONS is a FREE service provided by St Loye’s Foundation to help former military personnel live a fulfilled and independent life after military service. We understand that transition from military service to civilian life is more than simply getting a job on leaving the Service. We also know that trying to do this on your own can be extremely difficult. With a positive mindset and the support from our team of dedicated former Armed Forces personnel we aim to help you achieve this and move your life forward, turning positive intent into positive action and providing you the support you need for as long as you need it.
