We are Supportive, formerly known as The Social Resource Centre, a registered charity and not for profit organisation founded in 1994 to support people in County Durham to live full and active lives with the freedom of choice in their own future.
Our professional quality volunteer transport, domiciliary home care, training and support services, are managed from our base in Ferryhill where we offer premium care and reliability to people of all ages in the cities, towns and villages in the County Durham area.
We have a full 100% good rating from the Care Quality Commision (CQC)
At Supportive we care. We place people at the heart of everything we do, delivering independence and support to those who need us, those who invest in us and those around us.
As a charity we support initiatives to bring comfort, companionship and happiness to the vulnerable and isolated within our communities and we welcome support and donations in whatever form they come.
Maybe you are looking for a way to become a volunteer, or have a family member who needs a bit of extra support at home or getting to health appointments. Supportive could be in a position to help.
Our Transport services span from Stanley and Consett to Durham and Sedgefield, Seaham and Peterlee to Newton Aycliffe and Bishop Auckland. Our Domiciliary care covers many of the same areas and allows people the choice to remain in the comfort of their own homes, keeping their independence. Our care staff are trained to the highest level and everyone within our organisation has been through an enhanced DBS Check.
