About Us

Who are we?

Uppertunity is a community interest company, providing a personal development service and inclusive social opportunities for adults with additional needs. We provide activities and opportunities for individuals to better themselves and their lives, leading to long term self-reliance. We do this by offering weekly social and creative groups, our Daring For Development program and meaningful volunteer opportunities. 

Our Ethos

We believe that everyone has strengths and unique qualities that can positively influence their world. However, sometimes it can be difficult to know how to start. We are here to empower people to move forward with confidence. 

We have created a safe and nurturing environment, where individuals feel comfortable to test themselves and explore their talent and capabilities. 

We are person centred, placing an emphasis on mutual respect and trust. Our members are a part Uppertunity and not merely a recipient of a service. 

We challenge our members, advocating progress not perfection, encouraging individuals to make mistakes and to learn from them, and always give something a go.
