Supporting Extraordinary People

    to promote Healthy Living and Skills Development

    Everyone deserves the opportunity to gain new skills and experiences, face challenges and realise their hopes and ambitions.
    to promote Social Inclusion

    Everyone should be able to make new friends, have fun and be part of a social group.
    to promote Continuing Education, Training and Work Experience

    Everyone has the right to an education. People with disabilities should have the encouragement and support to allow them to build confidence and self esteem, realise their potential and be all that they can be.
    to provide Respite, Advice and Support to parents and carers.

    Noone should feel isolated or excluded because of their caring responsibilities, or miss out on vital information, support or advice. Everybody needs a break. We are all in this together.
