Q. Why are we called Civitas Vera?

A. We thought about the purpose of our work and realised that it is about helping people become citizens of their worlds and societies as they want.

Civitas vera is latin for 'True Citizen'. We chose the phrase as we felt it describes our aim, for people with differences to be supported to express their own true version of citizenship.
