Our Values

  • We advocate the meeting of needs and the promoting of choice.
  • We seek choice in education, housing and care provision, not ‘one size fits all’ solutions
  • We support for the rights of parents and family carers to be consulted and listened to.
  • We believe that professionals and families in partnership can achieve the best outcome with the best value for money.
