What We Value
Inclusiveness and Empowerment
Providing endless opportunities for young people with disabilities to access all aspects of their community. Breaking down perceived barriers of what people with disabilities cannot do, and empowering our guests to independently and actively engage in each and every part of life they choose.
Respect and Trust
Respecting every guest’s right to make their own decisions, and to live life the way they choose. Developing a high degree of trust and rapport with both our guests and their families or carers through our professional, caring service. Providing families and carers with the confidence and peace of mind that we are providing a safe, respectful, supportive experience that is meeting all of their loved one’s needs.
Friendship and Community
One of the greatest things our guests will take from our experiences is lasting friendships and the opportunity to be part of a community of friendly, like-minded others. Our guests will experience a deep sense of belonging and connectedness both with the Stellar and wider communities, which will last long after an experience itself has ended.
Fun and Happiness
Every one of our experiences is built around having fun and being happy. We greatly value our guest’s input and decision-making surrounding what they want to achieve and experience. There is an overwhelming sense of freedom and independence that comes with utter happiness that we want all of our guests to experience. Life is an awesome adventure; we enable our guests to be part of the experience!
