Some starting points for our work
The love of family and friends is the most reliable,natural and empowering source of support for any person.
Any person can enjoy the challenge of new ways of living, learning and personal development right through their life.
Each person living in the community makes a difference in the first instance by being merely present.
Human rights are most powerfully advocated for by those whose rights have been restricted, their family and friends.
The will and preference of each person in decisions that are made starts with a celebration of each creative act of expression.
Respecting a person means that they are supported in learning from the experience of both success and failure in a safe environment.
Living in a community and having a valued part to play in what goes on there anchors social integration and a sense of belonging.
Personal change happens with the active complicity, accommodation and development of people who live alongside a person.
Healthy relationships start with a respect for where the person is at now and a belief in their potential to surpass all expectations.
A healthy relationship means that each person has room to make a contribution in how that relationship develops
