How we work
When you get in touch we will have an initial phone call about what you want to achieve and how we can help. We will then arrange a meeting to discuss your requirements in detail. We will then put a detailed plan together with full costs.
You will pay an hourly rate for each hour/part hour, which will vary depending on the support you require. Details will be provided after an initial meeting. You will be invoiced for our services at the end of our project with you, or for longer projects, at agreed intervals.
Why do we want to help?
We want to work with you because we’ve been there! Our two founders have had long careers working with local communities, disability charities and social enterprises. They have also raised their own disabled young person to the point of work and leaving home, so they know the pitfalls, the heartache, the lack of ambition and the barriers facing disabled people.
We want to help local communities to offer disabled people the same opportunities that we all expect; a feeling of belonging, feeling valued and being listened to. They should be able to take part, have choices, enjoy their community and give something back.
