Optimising support that leads to the fulfilment of meaningful outcomes
We believe in the power of activity to drive meaningful outcomes for people.
This approach improves health, happiness and wellbeing. We explore each individual’s capabilities and identify the daily tasks that they could do for themselves so they can stay active in a way that suitsthem.
By setting smart objectives and building confidence and self-esteem, we empower them to do as much as they can themselves. This means they can develop the skills they need to live the life they want, stay safe and only receive support and assistance when it is required.
Many of the outcomes that we drive towards incorporate:
Developing life skills and supporting an individual to reach their full potential
Gaining qualifications and work or educational experience
Sharing experiences with friends and family and building the confidence to meet new people or have a relationship
Finding a house or a place to live
Access to assistive technology and support
We can help people access a range of assistive technology and technical support. For example:
Use the alarm on a mobile phone to remind people to take their medication
Make use of epilepsy alarms and other listening devices

Develop ‘communication passports’ using iPads and other tablets for individuals who can’t verbally communicate
Making Information Accessible
By adopting the ‘information for all’ standard, we provide information that is accessible and meaningful to each individual. We always, of course, consult with the people close to them to check the accessibility of all the materials we produce.
