What We Do

KeyRing’s network model has been core to our service delivery since 1990. All the services that we offer are based around the assets of the people we support and other people in their communities. This approach also saves money. Click here to read our Financial Case for KeyRing report.


What is a KeyRing Network?

A supported living network is made up of a number of ordinary homes. People who need support live in all but one of them. These people are KeyRing Members. They help each other out and meet up regularly.

A Community Living Volunteer lives in the other home. The volunteer is a person who helps Members out. They help with things like reading bills, forms and letters. The volunteer supports Members to meet up, map their community, explore what’s going on in their neighbourhood and get involved.

If Members need more support, there are paid workers to help them. These workers can help if Members need support that will take more time. Everyone takes Members' ideas seriously and the support they get is carefully planned to help them get where they want to be.

If you like the sound of a KeyRing network, or think that the ideas they support are of interest to you, why not contact us?
