We support people to
lead great lives
Streets Ahead has been supporting people in the Borders for 30 years. Over that time, we have gained a great reputation for supporting people with learning disabilities, but word of our excellent services has spread and we currently provide person-centred support to a wide group of people across the whole of the Scottish Borders.
We aspire to be leaders in outcomes-focused practice and recognise the need to empower people, so that they can get to where they want to be.
A word from our Chair
“On behalf of the board of trustees and everyone at streets head, thanks for visitng our website. Whether you would like us to give you support, or come and work for us, you will find a warm welcome and we will support you in anyway we can.”
Tricha Hunter, Chair of the Streets Ahead Board
Streets Ahead (Borders) was set up to enable people with learning disabilities to be supported in their own homes. We now offer support, guidance and practical help to a range of people living in the Scottish Borders. We also offer support to their families and carers.
“Where people we support live an independent and fulfilling life in the local community”
At Streets Ahead, we believe that everyone has the right to live their life with privacy, dignity, independence and choice and to be free from harm. We also believe that we should take our responsibilities towards equality, diversity and fairness very seriously. We have developed a set of core values which we call our WE CARE values. These underpin how we translate this belief into our day-to-day approach. They set the standard for our behaviour and help us to hold each other to account on how we meet the standard.
Our Track Record
For many years Streets Ahead has been considered a trustworthy provider of personalised services in the Scottish Borders.
