Our values

Since day one, National Star’s aims have remained simple: to give people with disabilities the support, skills and opportunities they need to be prepared for the best that life can offer.

For some, that can mean going on to further education and possible employment. For others, being at National Star may mean discovering how to communicate using state-of-the-art technology, developing their skills for independent living and work, or learning how to get around by themselves.

Every year, our committed staff strive for a world that gives people with disabilities the opportunities they are entitled to as equal and active citizens. This sits at the heart of everything we do.

Our Vision: Is for a world in which people with disabilities are able to realise their potential as equal and active citizens in control of their lives.
