We offer a range of valued and meaningful opportunities to actively support and empower people with a learning disability and associated difficulties to participate in activities which enhance the quality of their lives. We work in partnership with parents and/or carers, the local community and local services in order to expand support networks, thus promoting independence and ensuring that service users are fully included in the running of their home and are respected as part of the local community. We ensure that services are responsive and well led, endorsing an attitude of openness and transparency to ensure the wellbeing and safety of all.
