Mission Statement

Innovative person-centred Occupational Therapy where the person has choice and control over what kinds of therapeutic supports they would like to use to assist in reaching their goals, and the ways in which these services are delivered.

Values

Person-centredness
The person and/or carers or other stakeholders are central to decision-making throughout the course of therapy.

Excellence
Therapy services are delivered with respect to participant preferences, current research and the evidence-base for the research. Therapeutic services use outcome measures holistically and which have been appraised for validity and reliability.

Advocacy
Occupational Therapy believes in an advocacy role to enable participants to pursue their aspirations, and we will engage respectfully in the social and political environments as a means to assist participants to reach their goals to becoming more independent.
