Organisation aims and objectives

Ability Shetland is a charity which provides direct support to children, families and adults with disabilities and additional support needs. Responding to identified needs, we run groups and clubs and provide individual support and information for individuals and the wider community. We help people to improve their physical abilities and enhance their personal, social and relationship skills. We aim to ensure that they have equal opportunities and avoid the loneliness and social exclusion, which often results from disability. To achieve these aims, we tackle the challenge of reaching people in all communities, many of whom are in remote, rural and island areas.
