We are a vibrant national charity supported by our patron, Her Majesty the Queen. We have been a specialist college for young people with disabilities and associated learning difficulties for over 65 years.
The Residential Service runs 52 weeks a year. We support a wide range of adults with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and autism. We are currently working in partnership with Sutton Centre Academy delivering workshop sessions to a small group of citizens – these workshops only run during term time. The sessions currently include Tai Chi, Exploring hobbies, and recycled crafts.
