A Sense of Place has many definitions. We define it as a unique collection of a person’s abilities and characteristics that together help them feel a sense of place within themselves and their world. And our role is to support people to create their own sense of place.
Having a Sense of Place is feeling a sense of having a place to belong; emotionally, spiritually and physically. This connection to place is vital to our sense of identity and our feeling a sense of purpose.
This name resonates deeply with us. How does one feel a sense of place when their life decisions are out of their hands? We want to work with people to help them take control of their lives. We want to show people the choices they have and what is possible.We believe in strong community connections and we are committed to outcomes and delivering on our word.
Our vision is for everybody to recognise their ability to create their own life. At Create A Sense of Place, we want everyone to live their life with purpose, to create their sense of place. We want to be a microphone when someone needs it, but not their voice.
We will continue to push the boundaries and set the benchmark, to challenge ourselves and the sector to empower people living with a disability to live the life they choose.
