More about the charity

We are a local independent charity for people with learning disabilities, their parents and carers living in South West Hertfordshire.  All the funds we raise are spent in the local area and are used to make a real difference to the lives of people with a learning disability such as Down's and autism.

To make this happen we will

  • support people to enjoy choice and control over their own lives, to enable them to work towards fulfilling their life ambitions and achieve their potential
  • provide a range of high quality, individually-tailored services that focus on the individual and their family.
  • support people to understand and obtain their rights and responsibilities as members of society
  • recognise that people have skills, abilities and expertise, using these to inform the organisation’s growth and progress
  • involve and include people in evaluation and decision-making at all levels of the organisation
  • campaign to ensure the rights of people with a learning disability and their families are respected and that they have access to the services they need, to challenge the boundaries of discrimination.
