Our mission, vision and values
The purpose of our organisation is to support families who have
someone with a disability to build a Circle around that person for
their lifetime. This gives family carers peace of mind that even after
they are gone their relative will continue to live a good life which
Meaningful inclusion in their community.
We provide long term commitment to the person, their family, and
We recognise that other vulnerable groups will also benefit from our
approach; wellbeing will be improved with a stronger network of
informal support. We are able to work with people who have learning
disabilities, people with complex support, older people and people
with mental health issues.
Our values put the person and their family at the heart of all that we
do. We value meaningful participation in everyday life, with
achievable goals to work towards. We recognise the contributions
everyone can make to be an equal citizen. Caring relationships
which are not dependent on paid staff are fundamental in ensuring
vulnerable people have equality in their experiences of life.
Our purpose is to end loneliness and isolation
for people with disabilities. Many people have
paid support, some will rely on family members
to care for them. People will have their basic
needs met but not necessarily the wider aspects
of wellbeing. A good quality of life includes
opportunities to form lasting friendships and to
take part in everyday activities. The aim of a
Circle is to ensure that the person has an
informal structure of people who will be involved
for the long term throughout the person’s life, so
that they can flourish.
