Our purpose is to provide people with the skills and the support to gain control of their own lives.

We believe that every person has the right to be supported in a way that does not degrade their dignity.

We are part of an international family of 500,000 co-workers, working in 500 centres of care in 50 countries, and impacting on over 7 million lives every year.

We don’t have one standard approach but creatively provide help and support to people in the way they want and to meet people’s needs, wishes and aspirations.

Every day we say ‘come in, you are very welcome’ and every day we are inspired by the strength, humanity and hospitality of the people that we work alongside.
