Values & Vision

Embracing Disability. Empowering Lives.

Our vision is to empower individuals with learning disabilities to realise their full potential. At SoLO, we create a comfortable, safe, and secure environment for our service users, enabling them to be stretched, challenged, and take risks.

In the past, many individuals living with learning disabilities were not given the opportunity to reach their true potential. We aim to break down these barriers and eliminate social norms that have hindererd individuals with learning disabilities, enabling them to achieve their utmost potential in life.

Therefore, we are dedicated to educating the community and advocating for the evidence-based, professional approach embodied in our S.T.A.R. Quality values:
