We provide support for disabled children and young people, and their families, to help them reach their full potential.

Professional advocacy services

We advocate on behalf of disabled children and young people. We're experts in communicating with disabled children and young people. And we know that children and young people get the best out of life when they can express their needs and views.

Support at the right time

Caring for a disabled child or young person can be challenging. Even the most experienced parents and carers will sometimes need someone to turn to for advice and support. We offer support when it is needed. By working together with families, children and young people in this way, issues can be prevented from escalating.

Families dictate the level of contact that suits them. Our keyworkers can then offer tailored, long-term support. It's all about what works for the individual family.

Preparing for adulthood

With the right support, disabled young people can build the confidence and independence they need to be leaders of their own lives.

For some young people with more complex needs, it's about celebrating the small steps. Because those small things can be big achievements. It's about supporting young people to reach their full potential, whatever that may be.

Planning ahead for the future

It all begins with a plan - one based on what young people want as well as what they need. That way, each young person has a pathway plan that's theirs.

We provide a key worker for ongoing support and work with a young person and any future care and support providers to ensure continuity. Whether it's through video, photos, or symbol-based communication, we ensure young people's opinions get heard. And if they need us, we'll be there to speak on their behalf.

Being positive about the possibilities

Building confidence and independence starts with life skills. It's about hanging out with friends and making new ones. It's about being part of communities and doing activities. And it's practical things too: budgeting; shopping; getting around.
