Welcome to The MOVE Partnership

The MOVE Programme is an integrated, multi agency (Education, Health, Social Care) approach for children and adults with physical disabilities and/or complex needs.

MOVE provides a framework for collaborative working, with the expertise of all agencies channelled towards personal, functional, goals set by the participant & their family. This approach enables the development of lifelong physical, cognitive and communication skills, leading to improved independent & social inclusion and ultimately, quality of life.
