Promoting self confidence, individuality and strong values of community and respect.

Welcome to Deaconstar

Adults with disabilities have to overcome many challenges in life. Ignorance shouldn’t be one of them. At Deaconstar we work with the people not disabilities.

Providing support for adults with a disability can be a complex process. It can require patience, expertise and long hours. It can also be hugely rewarding and inspiring. At Deaconstar we believe that the support we provide to adults with a disability should always be person-centred. So we assess needs, find solutions and discuss options. But at the heart of everything we put the person, not the disability, first.

Having fun, and creating a safe place to try new things.
Helping to raise each person’s expectations and potential

Working with adults with disabilities

Deaconstar have years of experience in supporting adults with a disability and we know that there are many ways in which disability can affect lives. We treat each person as an individual requiring different levels of support. Deaconstar specialise in working with people with learning disabilities and complex physical disabilities

What We Do

We provide support to adults with a learning disability in 6 properties around the Bishop Auckland area.
