About PSS

PSS is a social enterprise that supports people to live happy, healthy and hopeful lives, whether they’re:

  • adults who have learning or physical disabilities, challenges with their mental health or difficulties as they’re getting older;
  • people in and around the criminal justice system; or
  • families who’ve been through unsteady times.

No-matter who you are or where your life has taken you, we listen, understand and find a way to help you reach your goals.

Along with Shared Lives, we’ve got about another 12 different services that support people from all different walks of life.

We’ve been around since 1919 and invented a number of the care systems you see today. We were responsible for starting a whole host of charities you might recognise – Age UK, Relate, Citizens Advice Bureau and Legal Aid to name a few.

Oh, and did we mention that we created Shared Lives?

We only provide top-notch services at PSS

The quality of what we do is so, so important to us – in fact, we’ve got a team of people dedicated to it. We’re really proud of the top-notch services we provide. When you ask our teams why they want to give such a wonderful service, you’ll quite often hear them say ‘I’d want this kind of service’, or ‘This is the service I’d want for my mum.’ And that’s the way we look at things. We hope you do, too.

It’s about giving people support that touches a person’s life and gives them that bit of a helping hand when they need it most –without taking away their independence.
