At NMC we assist and enable young people with disabilities to achieve their aspirations in life.
It may be living independently, learning to drive, accessing education, starting work or anything they can think of!
We have a positive and realistic approach which focuses on abilities rather than disability and ensures each individual has the opportunity to reach their full potential.
It is a journey that involves the whole family of that individual and so we make sure they are also supported and reassured on this journey.
Every young person has to make these life changing decisions and we endeavour to lift the barriers and face the challenges head on.
