Organisation aims and objectives

All the work carried out by Cosgrove Care is underpinned by a strongly held set of values and beliefs known as the values of inclusion. This philosophy, where all people, regardless of ability, are seen to be citizens of worth, drives us in our mission to support people who are isolated or at risk of isolation to take power and control in their own lives. Our work is about Justice, Empowerment, Relationships, Trust and Support.
