Philosophy of Creative Support

Creative Support is committed to an individualised, person centred philosophy of service delivery which is designed around the individual needs and choices of our service users. Tichaona dancing with his mother

We work in partnership with service users themselves, their families and carers and other agencies to:

  • Enable people to enjoy a valued and inclusive life
  • Respect and uphold their rights and choices as equal citizens
  • Ensure their privacy, dignity and respect
  • Offer unconditional positive regard to promote self esteem
  • Enable people to realise their dreams and to achieve their goals and aspirations
  • Empower people to make positive changes in their lives
  • Recognise and build upon their personal resources, strengths and abilities
  • Gain confidence, life skills and independence
  • Improve their physical & mental health and well-being
  • Protect vulnerable people from harm and abuse
  • Increase acceptance and understanding in their communities and assist them to make a positive contribution to these communities
  • Provide opportunities for learning and self development
  • Access fulfilling activities (work, education, leisure), social opportunities and relationships
  • Provide equality of opportunity
  • Ensure their safety, security and quality of life.

Our mission is to promote the independence, inclusion and well being of people with support needs. We do this by working with the people we support, their families and partner agencies to deliver innovative, high quality services that meet individual needs and aspirations in a person centred way. We also aim to provide the best value to purchasers and to use our resources in efficient, flexible and creative ways.

“Every minute is important for us all and Creative Support is there when you need them, every minute of the day. And the final thing that I can say is, supporting you the way you want it is what Creative Support achieve!”

 

David Brown, Service User

 

“Before Creative Support took over, this was an institutionalised residential service and now it is about the choices and rights of the service users and their inclusion in the community. Creative Support has really good values; promoting independence and making sure service users live a good life.”
