The aims of the Association are:
to work in partnership with stakeholders, service users and the wider community with the aim of highlighting the needs of the most vulnerable people living within local communities and working with those partners in order to ensure the needs of vulnerable people are met;
to provide a range of high quality supported housing provision for single people who are either homeless or in housing need;
to provide a range of care and housing support options for people who find difficulty in accessing mainstream services;
to provide flexible support packages, relevant to individual needs, to people in their own homes;
to ensure that effective partnership work results in the development of housing and support services that reflect changing needs and individual aspirations;
to ensure that diversity is valued as critical to the success of the Association, and,
to ensure that all staff, clients, Board Members and other stakeholders feel equally valued, supported and respected.
We intend to achieve our aims by close partnership working, strategic planning including involvement in the wider strategic planning processes of housing social care and health bodies that are relevant to our work, by reflecting the views of service users, highlighting unmet need and the sometimes perverse effects of housing, social and health policies on vulnerable groups and individuals, and by developing an adequate supply of housing and support services for those whose needs are unmet.
