Our Mission

Since 1977, Independent Options has been working to empower people with disabilities, enabling them to take control of their lives, achieve their aspirations and enjoy life to the full.

We offer a range of highly personalised support services for children and adults who have a wide range of disabilities. We work with people who have learning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities, acquired brain injuries and mental health needs.

Society places barriers in the way of people with disabilities and those who love and care for them. However, we know that with the right support, families and carers are able to cope better and people with disabilities can reach their potential and lead fulfilling lives.

Our services enable people with disabilities to get the life they want and also ease pressure on families.

Our Mission and Values

We aim to empower people with disabilities so they can take control of their lives, achieve their aspirations and enjoy life to the full.

We believe that every person in society should be respected, listened to and given the same opportunities, regardless of any disability.

Our work is shaped by the people and families who use our services and we are committed to excellence in everything we do.

David's Story

This is David. Through Independent Options’ Supported Activities and Independent Living Skills (SAILS) Service he is supported to spend time at the service’s allotment space which has enabled David and his fellow service users to experience the enjoyment and satisfaction of planting, growing and harvesting their own plants and vegetables. It also provides valuable experience of planning, communicating and working within a team.

David has worked hard over the summer with his fellow service users tending to the allotment space, and has grown this wonderful crop of sunflowers for the allotment sunflower competition, as well as onions and potatoes.
