An introduction to Beyond Limits Dumfries and Galloway
This section of our website tells you about Beyond Limits Dumfries and Galloway: our values, our history, how we are funded and who works for the organisation.
Beyond Limits started in 2011 to support people with learning disabilities, mental health issues and other support needs in the South West of England, primarily in Plymouth and throughout Devon. In recent times Beyond Limits has also started working in Dumfries and Galloway, which is based in the South West of Scotland.
The Director of Beyond Limits Doreen Kelly, hails from Scotland, having been born in Dunscore, a small village in Dumfriesshire. The development of Beyond Limits Dumfries and Galloway is therefore close to her heart and Doreen is keen to provide employment to people from the local area and excellent services to those in need.
Beyond Limits Dumfries and Galloway provides bespoke home care services to people with learning disabilities and mental health issues and also provides care and support to those people with Dementia and who are at the end of life. Staying true to the same principles of Beyond Limits, the mission of Beyond Limits Dumfries and Galloway is to change the face of homecare services for good and to provide tailored support to people who are vulnerable due to circumstance or disability.
Our mission is to change the face of services for good, and to provide tailored support to people who are vulnerable due to circumstance or disability, or at risk of exclusion.
Our main experience is in working with people leaving institutional care, such as hospitals, group residential care, special educational establishments and people said to have challenged conventional services.
Our aim is to provide truly tailor-made support, designed so that everyone we work with can have:
- a home to call their own, which might be living with family
- a real place in the community
- control over their life and their future.
As well as providing services, Beyond Limits is a catalyst for change. Through our consultancy for change we aim to work with others to transform the face of social care for good.
