GO aims to promote employability, develop enterprise, and open up employment, volunteering and learning opportunities for people with disabilities.
Grampian Opportunities (SCIO) also known as GO works to develop opportunities for people with disabilities, mental health problems, sensory impairment, autism or long term conditions. Our approach is to support the development of relationships and encourage people to be actively involved in their community.
Here at Grampian Opportunities, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since 2000, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts. Just imagine what we can achieve together!
Three brand value messages guide our work:
• GO supports people as they take control of their own lives (support to dream, to plan, to live life to the full).
• GO empowers people to believe in themselves.
• GO promotes fulfillment through meaningful activity (community involvement, learning, volunteering and employment).
Our vision is a fully inclusive community where everyone has the opportunity and support to take up, retain and progress in learning, volunteering and employment.
GO is committed to promoting an environment of equality of opportunity. There is also a commitment to reducing the stigma and disadvantage, which surrounds disability and mental health problems. We promote good practice and challenge areas where change or improvement is needed.
