Values

UGSFSA is supported by the following values for community inclusion for people with a disability;

EVERYONE IS BORN INTO COMMUNITY
We are born among people.

ALL MEANS ALL
Everyone is entitled to be included. No one is too difficult, too old, too poor or too disabled to qualify.

EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE PRESENT
If we have never been present, no one will know when we're missing.

EVERYONE NEEDS TO BELONG
We need to know there's a place for us, not just a space for us.

EVERYONE IS READY
None of us has to pass a test or meet a set of criteria before we can be included.

EVERYONE CAN LEARN
As human beings we all grow and change and make mistakes: we are all capable of learning.

EVERYONE NEEDS SUPPORT
Sometimes some of us need more support than others.

EVERYONE CAN COMMUNICATE
Not using words doesn't mean we don't have anything to say.

EVERYONE CAN CONTRIBUTE
We need to recognise, encourage and value each person's contributions - including our own.

TOGETHER WE ARE BETTER
We are not dreaming of a world where everyone is like us - difference is our most important renewable resource.
