Building Independence

Or should we say inter-dependence?

People who become Members of KeyRing sometimes need to build on their skills for being independent. Some people may need a little help to get back on track. Other people have support over long periods of time. We will always adapt the level of support to the individual and encourage them to do more and more for themselves. This is often more than they or others thought they could.

We aim to reduce support not only by encouraging people to build on their own skills but by encouraging people to share their skills with each other. We also map out the resources in the local community so that people do not become reliant on services.
