At aebal we believe individuals can often be restricted by their environment rather than by their disability or mental health condition.
As a collective, we tend to become uncomfortable when we are exposed to behaviours we perceive as being inappropriate or unconventional. We are conditioned and taught what it is to be normal.
At aebal, however, we understand the world has many, wonderfully, unconventional human beings and that by forcing convention upon them it can have a detrimental effect on mental health and well-being.
In our experience, this urge to teach normality can cause harmful confusion, identity issues, it can limit potential, it can inhibit individuals from integrating into society and, in most cases, is completely unnecessary!
At aebal we embrace individuality, alleviate societal pressures and aim to be as creative and unconventional as possible in our approach to social support.
We ensure our staff never patronise or overprotect, but instead empower our clients to believe in themselves, discover what is important to them and, in many cases, learn who they are.
Safeguarding is of course paramount, but equally important to us is that everyone develops a sense of self, behaves authentically and a gains a genuine feeling of belonging.
aebal's mission is to inject some much needed fun, humour and personality into social care!
Each day we strive to create meaningful experiences and meaningful connections, which we hope will lead to our clients gaining new outlooks and aspirations for their futures and the confidence to welcome every opportunity life may bring.
