Come and learn with Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions

THURROCK LIFESTYLE Solutions are very aware that there are some people in our community who are potentially good employees, but simply need an opportunity to be able to prove their skills. These young people are often difficult to find within the traditional Council services and we are seeking to find them within the Communities of Thurrock.

Are Thurrock’s doctors failing our most vulnerable?

DIRECTORS of Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions CIC met with Labour parliamentary candidate, Polly Billington recently to discuss what the issues are for people with Learning Disabilities living in Thurrock. Shockingly, once again, the percentage of people who have had an annual health check is now below 40%. National research has shown that people with learning disabilities die younger than the general population not due to their impairment but simply due to poor healthcare. Are people dying to live in Thurrock?

Groovy time at the Cariads sixties night

Labour candidate praises Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions

LAST Friday morning I had the opportunity to spend a couple of hours with staff and customers of Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions who offer real choice and control to people with disabilities in Thurrock. A great experience. I would like to publicly thank Director Sunny Saini and CEO Neil Woodbridge for their valuable time and especially for the visit to their Stanford locality base in East Thurrock.

What will happen to health care in Thurrock after May?

THE scary reality is that Thurrock is the third lowest in the country in terms of spend per head in adult social care – which is not something to celebrate. This means that there is no more fat on the bone to be trimmed off. Many of the people we support in the community feed themselves on £20 per week – imagine suddenly only having £12 per week; what would you do?
