We are a Scottish charity and specialised social care provider supporting people with communication support needs associated with complex and sensory disabilities, and their families, where individual needs and choices come first.
Developed with families, our values enshrine the organisation’s ethos and guide the actions of all staff. Sense Scotland’s values in practice mean we will:
Be open and honest.
Recognise individual worth.
Build relationships through trust.
Act on the basis of individuals’ aspirations and needs.
In our services, programmes, events and activities we will:
Respect and protect dignity.
Work in a way that provides as much privacy as possible.
Safeguard rights, safety and welfare.
Encourage as much choice as possible.
Enhance independence by supporting people to do as many things for themselves as possible.
Help people to realise personal fulfilment and make the most of opportunity.
Provide opportunities for learning and having fun.
Acknowledge the value of risk-taking by assessing risk in such a way that it does not stop people trying new things.
