  • Mission statement

    We believe that life is for living.

    As people we always try to find a better way to do things, and as an organisation we are pioneers. We believe in being the best and strive for it across all our services.

    We go the extra mile to find the right solution for people, without presuming that we know the answers.

    We also guarantee you familiar faces, people that we hope you’ll enjoy meeting! At Thistle Foundation you only ever work with a small, individually matched group of people.

    Why do we guarantee this? Because we believe authentic powerful, positive relationships are what make the difference. This is something which you’ll see across all our services.

    We at Thistle believe we offer great value for money. You’ll be surrounded by thoughtful, trustworthy people, who always deliver on promises.

    There are similarities between what we offer and what others offer. The difference is in how we do it.

    We believe that life is for living.
