About Ethos

The transition to independent living.

Ethos Group (formerly Transhouse (Oswestry) Limited) was formed in 1994. Our mission is to help those who have experienced physical disabilities transition back into independent living through human support and technical aids. Our commitment is to make this process as easy as possible.

Who Comes to Ethos?

Some clients come to us upon discharge from hospital units, others may be living in the community, but in an unsuitable environment. All our clients share the goal of unassisted living in a home of their own.

What can Ethos provide?

We provide a specialist environment that aims to prepare our clients for independent living and transition to a home that works for them. We then set up bespoke care packages with each client to help pave their unique path back to independence.

Who we are and why we exist.
Ethos offers suitable adapted specialist housing, personal assistance and care, education and independent living services. We draw on our expertise, partnerships and years of experience of working directly with people to deliver change and a vision to end placement in inappropriate accommodation and lessen the impact of delayed hospital discharge.


To secure independent, integrated living opportunities for people with disabilities in order to promote their full participation into mainstream society.

Our strategic goals

  • To work at all times through the empowerment of individuals to enhance and sustain their confidence and opportunities according to their individual choices.
  • The strategies to achieve the objectives of the charity are based on the social model of disability. This states that “disability has social causes which are not to do with personal impairment or illness”.

Our core values


We can, and we do change the lives of people with Spinal Cord Injuries and for those with physical disabilities. Through this work we inspire people to help motivate others to achieve their aims.


Our integrity is grounded in our unique knowledge base, which comes from our long-established service provision and years of working directly with people who have Spinal Cord Injuries or a physical disability.


By giving people the tools to help themselves become as independent as possible, we uphold their dignity. We act with compassion, a sense of common decency, and with humanity.


We are curious, creative and responsive, willing to adapt to achieve a wider understanding of the needs and choices available to people enabling equality of opportunity.
