Vision, purpose and values


Gloucestershire will be a better place when disabled people and people with mental health conditions are equal, empowered and their rights are upheld.



The Trust acts as an agent of social change, working alongside disabled people and people with mental health conditions to create that change.



Our strategic goals are that disabled people and people with mental health conditions across Gloucestershire…

  • … have choice of opportunities that meet their hopes and passions
  • … are included and involved in their communities and the places where they live
  • … access their rights and see positive change on disability issues
