Symbol is a powerhouse for change! 

Our starting point in life is that anything is possible.  With this belief in mind, we work with children and adults with learning disabilities and autism along with their families to secure truly great lives, in spite of the challenges that they frequently face.  We do this by:

  • Really listening to people and being sure we know what they want and need in their lives
  • Designing and delivering individual solutions that take people towards their goals
  • Employing people that never give up and ensuring that they have the skills to do their jobs
  • Treating everybody with respect and dignity, believing in the value of all lives and advocating for people’s human rights
  • Ensuring that all support solutions build on people’s connections with their local communities
  • Challenging the status quo so that more opportunities are available for people with learning disabilities, autism and their families

For us this is more than a job; it’s a way of life.  If you have ‘landed’ on this website we want to invite you to join us on the Symbol journey.  It’s an adventure that we have been on for over 20 years and we wouldn’t turn back for anything!  There is an opportunity for anyone to get involved whether directly or indirectly.  We’d love you to take a closer look and see if there’s anything we can do for you or you can do for us.
