Our Vision/Mission

VISION

The service is user-led with an emphasis on empowerment, continuous development of both the service, staff and its users. It aims to empower those with disabilities through its presence and support while engaging with the wider community through joined-up working.

MISSION

Through Antonine we provide a modern and unique day service which fits the needs of people with disabilities and/or complex needs and/or learning disabilities that live in their own homes. Providing a timetable of activities both within the Antonine and the community aiming to make living with long term conditions easier through increased education, exercise and therapies. In the future it is likely that “antonine” will become a building based “hub” with most service users being encouraged to participate in their own communities.
