The launched of EPIC took place last month - EPIC aims to be part of the community and stands simply for Empowered People In the Community.
Being involved in the community is important to us at EPIC and is something many of us take for granted. It is where we work, socialise and indulge in our interests. It enables us all to develop friendships and relationships and gives us a sense of belonging. With better and equal access to the community we hope that the people we support will feel confident, valued, independent, empowered citizens who have greater choice and control of their own lives. In turn we hope this will have a positive effect our community too. By adopting the social model approach we hope to reduce barriers, challenge discrimination and encourage inclusion.
