Our Impact

We empower and enable individuals and local communities regardless of age, ability, or background to participate in society and the neighbourhoods in which they live.

Our service users regularly feel they have little or no control and ownership of their lives, daily decisions, and futures.

They report multiple disadvantages, poor health and wellbeing, reduced inclusion in meaningful learning, fewer employment opportunities and access to outdoor activities.

Through ongoing consultation with local people, we can improve our understanding of the issues they face and demonstrate long term change across our services and the communities in which they live.

  • We continuously review and monitor the way we work at all levels, enabling us to focus on positive social, environmental and economic changes.
  • We act as a voice for local people we promote control, co-production, innovation, inclusion and independence.
  • We involve all people regardless of age or ability to influence local and national policy; ensuring co-design with disabled individuals and groups.
  • We provide services that are fit for purpose and sustainable; reducing reliance on statutory services and increasing ‘self-help’ and peer support.


How we make lives better

Our user-led approach means those involved report positive improvements to mental/physical health and wellbeing, reduced isolation, improved knowledge, skills and opportunity, access to suitable employment and increased independence.

Ideal for All provides meaningful experiences, and long-term solutions to promote positive opportunities for all.
