About us

Since 2001 we have been trailblazers and champions of self-directed support for people in Scotland.

Our aim is simple: we want to be of service to people, supporting them to live the life they want to live…their best life.

We are honoured/proud to work with people with learning disabilities, mental health issues, Autism and other additional support needs. We want to see people grow and flourish, whatever their age or circumstances.

We take a person centred, human rights approach to our work. We’ll design the support a person receives so that it fits perfectly. We like to think that we’re more like a tailor-made suit than something bought off the shelf. We work in a way that fits you perfectly and flatters you too!

Our job is all about bringing out the best in people and we adapt to your needs and wishes, matching our support to your idea of the life you want to live.

The key principles of our work


Power and control remains with or as close to the person as possible, ensuring they direct their own support


As people’s needs and wishes change, their support changes with them

Each person has a transparent individual funding arrangement


Active partnership working ensures a shared understanding of outcomes and the support that’s needed to achieve them
