Mission and Values
- To deliver high quality and successful advocacy services which help people to control their own lives, make their own decisions and achieve their own goals.
- To take action to challenge discrimination and disadvantage.
- To challenge conditions which lead to people feeling oppressed.
We believe that every individual should be an equal member of society: everyone has the right to plan their own life, to be listened to, taken seriously and to be respected.
People have a right to choose how to live their lives.
People have a right to jargon-free information, provided openly
We do challenge those who tell people what to do and bully or dominate. This includes: domination that is expressed in a protective manner, and domination which results from institutionalised practice or procedures.
We work to build opportunities for people to experience an enabling and liberating climate within groups and within relationships.
We believe that people with any form of disability or mental health problem are equal within our society. Throughout our work we strive to make this a reality.
Where people need support tailored to their needs, we will strive to listen and learn and help people realise their aims.
Involvement and consultation
We have established an organisational style that encourages the involvement of people who access our services.
