About Us

‘Our mission is to enable young people and adults with learning disabilities to lead  fulfilling and empowered lives in the community’.

Empowering Lives began in 2009, when sisters Bev and Emma combined their experience of social care, health and education to provide a bespoke support service that could meet the individual needs of service users in the community. Today Empowering Lives are one of the most reputable support services in North Devon.
