A support group in Kettering helping adults and children with learning and physical disabilities has launched a new website.

Active Support Service, based in Alexandra Street, provides outreach assistance to about 100 people in the borough.

The service, now five years old, has set up a new website to provide information on its services and how it can help people.

Director Mandy Coyne said: “We’re always looking to provide our service to more people and by launching this website we hope to achieve that.

“Many younger people use the internet so it only felt appropriate to offer something to them online.”

The firm is independent of the Government, but receives funding through people using its services.

Services include helping elderly people around their home and offering social activities to younger people.

The firm employs 60 members of staff.

In 2009 it received a two star inspection report by the Care Quality Commission. The maximum award is three stars.

Ms Coyne said: “Anyone wanting to find out more about what we can do for them should get in touch.”
