Support that's right for you
We think support will only work properly when it is designed to give people what they really want. This means understanding people’s hopes and dreams, as well as their needs.
So, if you ask us for support the first thing we will do is get to know you, to find out what you want. Then we will work with you to plan support that’s right for you.
We think that everybody, regardless of their disability or need, has the right to a decent life. This includes:
- a home of your own, which might be living with family or friends, or living alone
- the chance to live life as you choose
- control over what happens to you, which includes deciding how you spend your money.
If you need support with some or all of these things, we might be able to help.
Good support can look very different from person to person, as everyone’s needs and circumstances are unique. Our promise to you is that we will not make assumptions about you or try to fit you into something that isn’t right for you. Instead, we will ask you what you want and need, and then try to create support that fits you. That might mean adapting something we already offer. Or it might mean creating something completely new.
Our pledge to you is that we will listen. We will do our best to help you, but if we feel we cannot give you what you need we will try to introduce you to other organisations that might be able to help.
Our starting point is what you want. It’s our end point too.
Often families who are considering where to turn for support need to talk to someone in their shoes before they make decisions. Meet Lynda, our voluntary Families Ambassador here.
