Our Mission

Our Vision

We seek to promote the wellbeing and development of children and adults with learning disabilities and autism in all areas of their lives as well as supporting their families and carers.

Strategic Objectives

To provide support to access opportunities that ensure children and adults with learning disabilities and autism are:

· Have their views and needs listened to by decision makers.

· Supported to live as independently as possible, through the freedom of choice and control.

· Supported to campaign and stand up for their rights.

· Provided with the opportunities to continue to learn, develop and live their lives to the full.

· Have their dreams met e.g. Make friends, form relationships, get a job, live in their own home.
