An introduction to Beyond Limits

This section of our website tells you about Beyond Limits: 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 Plymouth and throughout Devon.

We were set up with the support of Partners for Inclusion, a pioneering and award-winning personalised support organisation in Scotland. Our Director Doreen Kelly was the founder of Partners for Inclusion and its Director, then CEO, from 2000 to 2015.

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, starting in the South West.
