At Real Life Options, we care about people. This approach is at the cornerstone of all we do.
We value people with a ‘can do’ attitude as well as skilled communicators who really listen to the people we support and their co-workers. We embrace diversity, welcoming staff from all backgrounds and walks of life who bring positive mindsets and creative thinking into their working environments.
Our staff are open and honest and respect the choices that the people we support make. We firmly believe that disabilities are no barrier to someone achieving their dreams and reaching their full potential. That’s why it’s important our staff stand up for the rights of the people we support and ensure that their voices and opinions are heard.
We recognise that the best ideas often come from those who have daily interactions with the people we support so we encourage a culture of collaboration and idea generation through staff forums and innovation groups.
