At IDEM Living we believe that people have the right to write their own stories and the opportunity to change the narratives of their own lives. Our job is to listen to you and help you develop your story by providing the opportunity for you to be safe, cared for and valued by those who support you.
Whatever the barriers and challenges, we will support you to take control of your life, provide opportunities that will broaden your experience and confidence in order to explore all of the possibilities that your future holds.
We see growing up as a safe time for you to explore, ask questions, and not feel pressured to always be right, but to be proud at “having a go”. We think life is about trying things new, finding out what works for you and exploring what you might want your future to look like. We view things that haven’t worked out today as an opportunity to try a new approach tomorrow to make it right. We don’t make judgements or worry too much about yesterday. We like to be honest, things can go wrong sometimes but it is how we deal with those things, and move forward that count. We include everyone, because we think everyone’s contribution is valuable.
We see the good in people understanding they have their own set of skills and abilities. our priority is to empower you to be able to have control, to make informed choices and gain the skills needed to become the person you want to be.
We are a values based organisation, which means we treat everyone with kindness and don’t judge them on who they are or what they have been through.
We want you to feel safe and grow in confidence so the we can work with you so you can change the shape and direction of your life. What does that mean in real terms? Well it says that we want to be open, clear and honest with you on who we are and what we can do to support you make the changes needed to be the person you want to be and achieve all your goals.
Our commitment to you is that we will always treat you with respect and dignity you deserve as a person we are entrusted to support. We judge our success on the progress you make whilst being part of our family.
