Our befriending and mentoring services for disabled people and parents of disabled children provide short-term, one-to-one support. This can include emotional support, coping skills, new ideas and working towards goals.
Whether it’s meeting up with mates, going to clubs, or everyday tasks like shopping or attending college, we support disabled people and families to achieve what they want to, developing skills and having great experiences along the way.
Our vision is for all children to be educated close to home, with their education, care and health needs met. Our schools and further education (FE) colleges offer high-quality learning that sets no limits on the potential of disabled students.
Our fostering service specialises in placing disabled children and young people with severe and complex physical and learning impairments – also known as special needs – with supportive and enriching foster families.
Our high-quality housing services offer much more than just a place to live and personal care. Our supported living, registered care and transition services focus on giving you a safe and supportive environment and meeting your goals.
We provide free and confidential information, advice and support for disabled people, their families, carers and professionals – online, on the phone and in person.
We believe all disabled children and young people should enjoy high quality, inclusive activities and breaks in their community.
Support at home
We want a society where everyone is included and supported to live in their local community.
We have a range of training courses for professionals, parents and carers. Our training explains practical ways to support disabled children and adults to take part in everyday life.
We support disabled people to find jobs, work experience and volunteering opportunities that will develop their careers and deliver results for employers.
