Our vision is a world where all disabled young people and their families receive the support and advice they need, when they need it, for as long as they need it.
Our mission is to help physically and mentally disabled children and young people find greater levels of independence and opportunity through the provision of appropriate aid and support.
We achieve this through our programme of services entitled Towards Independence.
- Mobility and other equipment provision to aid independent movement and greater independence.
- Work Related Learning, a programme providing supported work experience, learning about the world of work, and access to employment training and greater independence.
Accredited Independent Living Skills teaching practical life skills such as cooking, cleaning, grooming, budgeting and using public transport – all of which help when taking the first steps towards living independently.
Our values are based on friendliness, approachability, personal contact, dedication and openness.
Action For Kids provides a safe environment where people can express themselves openly – as part of a family rather than being on a conveyor belt. Action For Kids is not about numbers, but about quality, and the ‘family feel’ of being a small charity is a critical factor in our identity and culture.
We seek to create an inclusive environment in which everyone feels they are a stakeholder and part of the family. We try to build long-term relationships that have meaning.
Our emphasis is on independence, and we focus on abilities, not disabilities. We offer a down-to-earth, practical, personal and caring service, working for the right outcomes for young people.
As a charity we value all the volunteers, donors and funders who make it possible to carry out the work with the young people.
