About us

Vision, Purpose and Values

Our Vision

People with a disability are empowered to live a dignified and independent life of their choosing, connected to family, friends and community.

A Dignified Life requires a sense of purpose and a right to choose

Our aspiration is for people with disability to experience a meaningful, contributing life with happy, memorable moments from which they derive a sense of purpose and fulfilment.

Our aspiration is for people with disability to determine their life course, even if taking reasonable risks.

An Independent Life requires a caring support network

Our aspiration is for people with disability to connect with people who are not just paid to care for them, but people who genuinely care for them, so they are empowered to live independent lives.

A Connected Life requires genuine relationships

Our aspiration is for people with disability to build genuine relationships with family, friends and community, through which they feel accepted, valued and loved.

Our Purpose

Provide support services to people with a disability that affirm who they are, build their capacity and create opportunity to live a dignified, independent and connected life.

Affirm Care’s purpose describes how we contribute to our vision for people living with a disability. Our purpose and our name emphasise how important we believe it is to first affirm who a person is, building their sense of self-worth and self-esteem.

Our services help people build capacity (through knowledge, skills and expertise) and create the opportunity to live a dignified, independent and connected life of their choosing.
