Values & vision

Embracing disability. Empowering lives.

Our vision is to empower people with learning disabilities to achieve their full potential. Within SoLO we see our members with a learning disability spending time in an environment that is comfortable, safe and secure enabling them to be stretched, challenged and take risks. 

In the past we know many people who lived with a learning disability were not stretched and challenged to live to their true potential. We want to break down that barrier and remove any social norms to empower people with a learning disability to achieve all they can in life. 

Therefore, we seek to teach the community and why we commit to the evidence-based, professional approach embodied in our S.T.A.R. Quality values.
