Live Too Limited is an organisation that has been providing Independent Living in the borough of Wandsworth for over five years.
The sister company of Act Too Limited, home of The Baked Bean Company, we saw an opportunity through Independent Living to support service users/tenants to live full and independent lives in their community.
At Live Too we provide support designed around you. We firmly believe that everybody is an individual and therefore should be treated as such. By working in a person-centered way with you, your family, friends and support network we can help you reach your potential and live an extraordinary life.
We provide a range of support:
- Domestic duties
- Meal planning and preparation
- Social activities
- Travel training
- Health & fitness
- Family liaisons
- Life coaching
We support our service users/tenants when they need it and when it suits them.
The directors of Live Too have worked with people with learning disabilities in Wandsworth for over 25 years and have developed lots of personal and professional relationships within the community over this time. Their knowledge and these relationships help our service users to achieve the best they possibly can.
How it works
People can be referred to Live Too in a number of ways:
- Referred by a friend or family member
- Social Services
- Other professionals
A proposal is created around your needs and desires. If you are looking for community support, we consider several factors when creating the proposal.
- What you require support with
- Where you would like the support to take place
- When you would like the support to take place
- What sort of person (staff member) you would be best matched with
- How the support will improve your independence
- How many hours of support you need
If you would like to live in one of our houses then we consider the following factors:
- Who you would like to live with
- Your personality and needs
- Where you would like to live
- What sort of home you would like
- How much support you need
- When you will need this support to take place
Your support package will be developed with you at the centre. We will consider all of the above points and listen to input from you, your family and support network, and your social worker.
For more information about the support we can provide please visit our Housing and Community Connectors pages.
Staff Team and Training
We have a meticulous recruitment procedure and only take the very best applicants. We believe that it takes a certain type of person to work with our service users/tenants; somebody who is proactive and can empathise with the challenges and experiences you face on a daily basis.

- The Care Certificate
