Positive Difference Isle of Wight is an exciting new company with a strong set of values that governs our range of work. We believe that everybody has a right to take a full and active part in society, and to be valued as an individual, to be listened to, respected ad treated with dignity. We use principles of person centred thinking in every aspect of our work, and believe that by focusing on our strengths, and the strengths of the people we support, that we can all achieve better outcomes and more fulfilling lives.

We love to work with individuals using our advocacy service, and provide both instructed and non instructed advocacy. We also believe strongly that alongside this there must always be support to develop self advocacy skills to empower people to speak up for themselves and be aware of their rights. We also work with groups to help facilitate meetings and represent the voice of people at strategic level to ensure that collective voices are being listened to ad action is being taken.
We pride ourselves on offering innovative, interesting and engaging training in all aspects of care and support, specialising in learning disability and Autism, and disability equality. We base our training on real life experience and knowledge and ensure that learning can be applied in practice.
Our ethos is to develop our courses with your needs in mind, so please take a look at our courses, and let us know your requirements. We can add and change objectives to ensure we meet your needs.
Our focus is on ensuring that Care and Support staff, as well as volunteers, family carers and activity organisers can work in inclusive ways, using person centred approaches and developing inclusive and supportive communities.
