The Expect Group’s priority is the safety of its service users, staff and visitors to our services and we want to reassure you that whilst we are doing our very best to keep life in our services as normal as possible we are also planning for a wide range of eventualities that are linked to the COVID-19 outbreak. We have taken the decision to only have essential visits to our residential services for the next few weeks and we are encouraging the friends and families of service users in our supported living services to limit their visits for instances that they deem to be essential.
GUIDANCE FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE CONSIDERING VISITING OUR SERVICES

Initially named South Sefton Mental Health Housing Group Ltd, the charity is proud to have provided services to the people of the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton since March 1989. The CQC registered charity was born out of an imperative to move people with Learning Disabilities and Mental Health Problems from large instituations, where they had lived for many years, and to provide them with supported accommodation closer to their communities of origin.
Now named Expect Limited, we continue to offer Residential, Supported Living and Day Care, including Domiciliary services to adults experiencing a range of vulnerabilities.

Partnership - Expect works in partnership and collaboration with people we support, their relatives, commissioning agencies and other like-minded voluntary, community and faith sector organisations and groups.
Empowerment - Expect will support and encourage the people it works with to make difficult, sometimes challenging, but safe decisions in relation to all aspects of their lives. Peoples' independence will be fostered, as will their retention of links with their communities.
