Who we are

We are locally managed and funded, not a branch of  the national organisation although we do work closely with them on many of our projects. We are a membership organisation and have over 150 members made up of people with learning disabilities, carers and other interested parties.

We believe everyone with a learning disability has an equal right to choice, opportunity and respect, with the support they need.

We are a forward thinking organisation with a dedicated team who will always be happy to help you and your family.

We have many existing serivces and can offer support for people of any age with a learning disability. We provide person centred support to all of our clients and support people with all different types disabilities.

If you have any queries or questions please contact us.
