about us Star Support For You Ltd is an exciting new enterprise, providing a personal service to enable young disabled people to employ their own staff and have as much choice and be empowered to make decisions as to how their care is delivered. The principle focus of Star Support For You Ltd is to support our clients through the recruitment, employment and management of their Personal Assistants. Through personal experience, we appreciate the difficulty disabled young adults have accessing the different services that will enable them to achieve independent living. Star Support For You Ltd has a network of professionals who can be accessed to help maximise independence. One of our team members is disabled and has experience in employing his own Personal Assistants for the past few years. This has resulted in a clear vision as to how to best advise clients by sharing the skills and techniques we have learned. meet the team
