Our continuing mission is that the girls be supported by committed carers to facilitate lives that are healthy, happy and independent. This mission is underpinned by values of family, person-centred support, capacity building and quality care.

This in turn is supported by their families who have forged this vision for the young men and their household.

They are young men with Autism who are non-verbal, but this certainly doesn’t define them or limit their options.
