Very few people with disabilities have jobs. Our objective is to enable more people with disabilities to participate in all forms of employment, wherever possible in paid work, and to make a valued contribution to the world of work.
We believe that effective partnership working by all agencies is the key to achieving social inclusion for people with disabilities; and so we work towards recognition of their rights as citizens, social inclusion in local communities, choice in their daily lives and real opportunities to be independent.
Everyone should have the freedom to be able to make choices. This includes people with severe and profound disabilities who, with the right help and support, can make important choices and express preferences about their day-to- day lives. We do this through advocacy and a person-centred approach to planning the services they need.
We enable people with learning disabilities to lead full and purposeful lives in their communities and to develop a range of friendships, activities and relationships.
We endeavour to support Carers to fulfil their family and caring roles effectively.
Because our social and health care locums (placed with organisations that work with people with disabilities) are appropriately skilled, trained and qualified; and because our organisation endeavours to promote a better understanding of the needs of people with disabilities amongst the wider community; we are able to provide high quality, continuously improving services which promote both good outcomes and best value.
