About Us

We are a Registered Charity founded over 30 years ago by a group of parents who were bound by a common goal of wanting the best for their children. Our inspiration was to create a service that meets the needs of their children and allow them to achieve so many of their aspirations than they had dared to dream was possible. We are passionate about improving the lives of people living with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Learning Disabilities, Mental Health conditions and challenging behaviours. We still hold those values dear to this day and continue to empower more people to live independent, fulfilling lives with no barriers.
