About us

We are a national charity working for an inclusive society where everyone has the support they need to live a good life and make a valued contribution.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help create a society where people at risk of being excluded have the support they need to live a good life and where everyone is able to make a valued contribution.

How we work

We operate as an extensive network and 'community for change' that aims to:

  • Work directly with people who need support, and with their families to provide them with the knowledge, power and tools to take control of their lives
  • Influence and improve the delivery of self-directed support
  • Develop and test new innovative ways for people to be in control of their lives
  • Measure the impact of self-directed support and personal budgets on people's lives

We're currently funded by a range of bodies such as foundation trust funds, grants and government bodies (local and national). These organisations enlist our help to implement self-directed support/personalisation.
