People doing simple activities, such as shopping and making tea

We asked local residents, our staff and partner organisations what was important to them: 

“Having the control over my own life and self-determination – with the appropriate support.” 

“Being able to engage in the community, to be an active part. Not to be marginalised and seen as a burden on society. To be given the support to lead a normal, active and fulfilling life.” 

“No one-size fits all – true diversity means not treating everyone the same because we’re not the same –  we are working with human beings – individuals.” 

“Being truly part of the wider community engaging with a range of people and cultures and participating in activities they enjoy.”
