We work together to enhance independence. Our vision is to create a world where disability is not a disadvantage, as envisaged by the social model of disability. Our mission is to deliver a range of quality services, which meet the needs of disabled people in Northern Ireland in a manner which facilitates their right to independent living in an inclusive society.
Independent Living Advisor
We focus on assisting disabled people in making the biggest
difference they can in their everyday lives. We encourage them
to feel part of a diverse movement that is bound by a common
purpose and values, so they can have an impact on issues that
no organisation can solve alone. We support our staff so that
whatever they say and do is relevant and responsive to the
everyday experiences, needs and aspirations of disabled people.
We advocate for independent living values, principles and
practices, namely barrier-free environment, provision of
personal assistance support and adequate technical aids,
together making full inclusion of disabled people possible.
We believe our leadership role as the voice of independent living is
best fulfilled by challenging and inspiring the people we work with.
We take the lead in promoting the credibility of and confidence
in disabled people’s own experience. We make sure what we
say is evidence-based and gathered through robust methods.
We are a small team with big ambitions for disabled people.
We are curious, innovative and open to new ideas. We try
new things and learn from them and encourage everyone
we work with to do the same. We seek feedback and use this
to enhance the quality of experience of working with us.
