Southwell Care Project, now Reach, was set up in 1999 by parents of children with learning disabilities who were worried about what life held as their children became adults. Today, our work is still shaped by the real-life experiences of adults with learning disabilities and their family carers. Many of our trustees and staff are themselves family carers.
We know it is vital to get the right support at the right time.
We can support adults with learning disabilities with a wide range of needs, whether living at home or in supported or residential accommodation.
We accept self-referrals and referrals from family carers and professionals in all settings.
Our experience staff and volunteer teams shape activities around individual interests and aspirations.
We don’t believe that one size fits all!
Most of our clients contribute towards the cost of our courses through personal budgets (payments allocated by the local authority). We can provide further support to adults with learning disabilities and their families who want to know more about personal budgets. Please contact our Head Office to discuss.
We also run lower costs activities like our socials which are offered on a ‘pay as you go’ basis. We can also sometimes offer lower cost places on projects that have received grants from funders.
As a not-for-profit organisation, we keep our charges as low as possible. Personal budget income does not cover the full cost of our activities so we fundraise from various sources in order to continue.
