The Project began as a pilot funded through Scope in 1996 and received a Community Fund (Lottery) award in 1999 running until August 2002. It was first developed from a group of disabled people working to develop their own Lifestyles project. We achieved Charitable Status in 2002. We became a charitable incorporated (CIO) in 2013. We have been financially independent since 2002, which was achieved by a mix of income earned from individual support contracts from Adult Social Care, Health Trusts, community mental health trusts and various other funders.
Since early 2000 we have have been awarded occasional one- or two- year awards for specific work: training and education, young persons project, ESF employment and skills related initiative. Energies are currently focused on providing quality care through the use of Personal Budgets.
