ABOUT AMBIS CARE
Ambis was started in 1998. It is a voluntary independent advocacy service for the disabled people of Kingston upon Thames. It helps cut cost of social care, which is already 40% of the overall budget for Kingston. Each year, over 100 Ambis’ clients get the support they (clients) need, cutting costs for the Department of Work & Pensions as well as the council by £1,000,000 –– that is every year
Ambis’ potential clients are those who have worked until their situations changed, leading them to need extra support without the economic security which would enable them to decide for themselves who what where or how long they need support for.
The Work & Social Care Act 2014 made many loose the support they were receiving. It has not given people incentive to move forward in life with chance of being active part of families and communities as a whole, as economical activities with suitable employment has not been accessible, putting other services under further pressure. This results in their care needs increasing to the point where they are hospitalised or incarcerated in secure units or at a far greater cost to the services, communities and families.
The NHS, Adult Social Services, Tribunals Department of Work & Pensions as well as the Local Councils 7 G.P Services are facing additional pressure through issues such as bed blocking. Without suitable care plans & the support patients need to recover in their own homes and families, they will stay in hospital, taking bed space & increasing costs.
75% of Ambis’ clients have previously worked in trade or are long term carers, for example; electricians, students & teachers, sales workers, plumbers, builders, gardeners & carers, painters & decorators & handy people, the elderly as well as the long term unemployed & school leavers.
75% of the clients are unemployed because they suffered from mental health conditions. This is due to a breakdown following: financial pressures; business bankruptcies; bereavement or with conditions like autism stroke T.B.I. M.E; and, long term physical disability or sensory reduction.
The clients have one thing in common: they want to work and to become economically active within their community. The problem is: they can’t afford to do so. They are scared of loosing any security they do have in the form of housing & income.
Therefore, Ambis: supports its clients with their C.V’s; introduces clients to modern work practices; helps clients gain access to personal care plans; and, makes salaries easy to understand allowing clients to plan their lives.
Our staff (clients) start their training on above the recommended living wage, at £12 per hour. This means that their take home pay is £10 for every hour they work or train. Supporting people on E.S.A or carers allowance to have £110 a week permitted working without risking their housing benefit.
Starting on a flexible contract means that there is less chance of them not wanting to continue, as they can still honour their existing commitments like child care. If they do decide to move on, they always receive a reference.
Some of the clients have been very young, with different needs. They need: work experience –– 1 week at the end of their school life –– to prepare them for the work place; apprenticeships to train them for full time work: help to manage their finances; a career plan to have incentives to work harder & stay longer.
Ambis does this through accredited training in care or in a field of clients’ choosing. Using their staff’s experiences in mentorship, Ambis helps the clients pursue trades for themselves in management or in business in clients’ own rights.
Ambis is a template organisation, first set up for the population of Kingston. Within the first two years, after it was set up, Ambis set up in neighbouring boroughs where each branch can support 300 people into employment and off benefits, saving £3,000,000 every year in social security & housing payments –– that is in every borough, not including the savings to other services like mental health services & local hospitals.
Our wage structure means that our staff/clients pay taxes into the local economy & due to them receiving a living wage, they will have the money to put into local businesses like the Rose Theatre, pubs & shops –– meaning Kingston can once again thrive.
Where a client cannot maintain a work life, Ambis supports them with advocacy and care so that they can have dignity and control over their futures. Ambis supports clients’ whole family as well.
Some clients’ disorders could result in challenging behaviours which are hard for families to manage on a day to day bases. Ambis’ staff are highly experienced in working with people who have autism, mental health conditions & dementia in their own homes, keeping families together.
Partly thanks to Ambis, there is a potential of putting an extra £1,000,000 into the local community through wages & another £1,000,000 through saving to benefits. Every year, there will be less chance of venerable people facing eviction & homelessness.
As a care & maintenance service, Ambis charges a flat rate of £15 an hour regardless of who is providing the service. So that, no matter what job needs to be done, from household maintenance to personal care, it is affordable to all client groups.
Ambis is connected with The R.I.S.E. Community Café. This connection has been beneficial to all concerned as Ambis could offer advocacy and support to a few of clients of The R.I.S.E Community Café. Ambis feels The R.I.S.E Community Café is an essential place to reach hard to reach clients as it has an accessible friendly atmosphere that allows clients to come to café a sandwich and a chat at no costs –– meaning it is open to all who need it.
Ambis is a social enterprise & non profit organisation, which means any profits they make as an organisation is invested in their staff and the community ––that way they improve standards of, & invest, in training. The income will always increase so that Ambis’ staff value the work they do as much as Ambis will.
Due to Ambis’ long standing in the disabled community through advocacy service, they have already built up an extensive network of organisations that promote Ambis for free, including 38Degrees, Turn2us & Scope. Ambis also advertises locally on radio and through leaflets.
Ambis Africa supports communities across Africa making villages for disabled people and their families. Their goal is to have accessible villages where gap year students with disabilities can go & share their knowledge, building communities where disabled people can go on exotic vacations while the community can get an income from tourists.
Ambis Care Services has enormous body of experience working with young people and adults with challenging behaviour, in particular those on the autistic spectrum.
Sarah [of Ambis] was recommended to me as an excellent carer of, as well as a highly experienced adviser and advocate for, special needs. I have a teenage son with autism with associated challenging behaviour and I needed help with him during the summer holidays as well as help myself with challenging a Department for Work and Pensions benefit decision.
In all areas, Sarah’s highly professional approach has been exemplary. My son took to her lovely warm, relaxed and humorous approach very well indeed and he was cared for excellently in our own home whilst we were away. A few incidents of challenging behaviour were dealt with with skill and sensitivity and I received highly detailed feedback.
In addition, the knowledgeable advice and support I received from Sarah has given me great confidence in challenging the DWP.
Sarah clearly cares a great deal about whomever she is working with and she understands how important it is to not only support the person with special needs but their entire family too. I would be very happy indeed to recommend Sarah and Ambis Care Services to anyone in need of help for those with special needs or mental disabilities. – Jean
Our giving is a truly growing activity because we weave the ‘giving’ into the fabric of daily lives where: everywhere in the World, businesses put, and consumers see, adverts, logos & barcodes; consumers pay for the products & services; and, consumers dispose of waste and collect garbage around the clock. – Kadu Titi, RaHa Member
