From Service User to Citizen
Rather than waiting for people to fall into crisis, assessing needs/deficits and testing eligibility for services, it walks alongside people, families and communities to build resilience, personal relationships, choice and control, contribution and local solutions
From waiting in negativity,
To a positive vision, a focus on strengths and aspirations, the value and power of self direction and welcoming, inclusive and supportive communities.
It’s about the rights and opportunities of active, valued Citizenship for all people in our communities.
