Gloucestershire is an inclusive community in which families with disabled children and children with additional needs feel supported, included and able to contribute.
Everyday Fun for everyone Everyone in our communities can have fun. We don’t make a song and dance about what we do – we keep things simple and ‘everyday’. We want families to feel that Allsorts is easy to join in with, and to know that everywhere Allsorts is, fun will follow.
Creating Positive Opportunities Allsorts is positive about disability and the opportunities there are for children with additional needs to have fun and try new things. We look for positive opportunities for work and life skills for our older members. We’re creative with the things we do, changing all the time to develop new opportunities.
Families Leading the Way Families are at the centre of Allsorts. The Allsorts team exists to make what families want happen.
Hearing Young Voices Allsorts is an environment where young voices are listened to. Those voices guide our approach and how we work with partners and the community.
We want to help families to do three things:
- Forge friendships 💛
- Try new things ✔
- Reduce isolation 👬
These are the things we measure ourselves against, to make sure we are achieving what families want from us.
