Families who have a family member with a disability need to be supported to not only survive but to thrive. To achieve this we explore the idea of what a “good life” looks like with families.
We support families to develop a strong and compelling vision of a good life. We do this to counter the culturally held low expectations of people with disabilities.
We assist families to plan so that the elements of a typical life are more likely to be present as a child grows to adulthood.
We encourage families to aim high and to focus on an ordinary life with valued roles.
We believe that independent planning from an early age supports healthier transitions through school and into adult life and helps families feel more supported and connected, helping them to build better lives for their family member.
