What We Believe

We work closely  with families, for families. Everything we do is carried out in the hope of improving the lives of our familie. We achieve this by working directly with parents and carers. We are driven by what they tell us.


We are ambitious. We believe that families with disabled children deserve better. That’s why we won’t stop until we have achieved our mission. We are driven to fight and advocate for what is right.


We transform lives. We drive innovation and change wherever it will benefit families with disabled children. We always focus on the impact we are having. Through this, we support the change t the lives of our families.


We challenge disadvantage. We tackle inequality wherever it exists, and we help our families to deal with the barriers they face on a daily basis.


We trust, and are trusted. That’s because we always act in an open, transparent, and accountable manner. We work collaboratively to achieve more, and respect the strength and knowledge of others.
