Love my life

An organisation-wide model of support has helped us embed a culture of high-quality support. Our framework is based on the European Foundation of Quality Management (EFQM) Excellence Model, validated by international research. It ensures everyone we support can set their own goals, benchmark their progress, and live a life not defined by their disability.
