Objectives

Options for Life is a not for profit charitable business providing a range of innovative opportunities for people with learning disabilities. We support people with learning disabilities to live their lives to the full and advance their personal development, enabling them to enjoy the same rights and opportunities as non-disabled people.

The ethos of Options for Life fosters open relationships based on mutual respect, and helps to create a welcoming atmosphere. Options for Life ensures that people with learning disabilities have the opportunity to develop preferences and make choices. We support participants to develop their communication and social skills, improve self confidence and self worth and increase independent living skills.

The organisation complements and operates in partnership with other organisations.

Activities

Options for Life provides workshops and skills sessions from our community hubs.  Our person centred approach gives participants the opportunity to develop preferences, choices and interests. We will support them to increase their self-confidence and self-worth, develop communication and social skills, extend social networks and increase independence with an outcomes led approach.

Options for Life has developed a small number of specialist services meeting specific needs. Programmes have been developed in response to particular needs and include WomanZone, for women with learning disabilities, Making Tracks supports people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and complex health needs, and Branching Out, is for older adults with learning disabilities.
