We are a Nottinghamshire charity supporting people with learning disabilities to live happier, healthier lives in their community.  People with learning disabilities in our county face a higher than average risk of poor health, loneliness and social isolation.


Our centres Reach Southwell, Reach Newark, Reach Mansfield, Flower Pod and Flower Pod Newark support people with learning disabilities to enjoy a better quality of life in their own community. We do this by offering courses, social activities, holidays and best practice projects to find new solutions to problems.  We also offer quality one-to-one care support through Reach Learning Disability Care CIC (rated outstanding by the Care Quality Commission).

Covid-19update on current day services

Although Covid-19 still prevents us from delivering our normal level of service to people with learning disabilities, we have now started to offer carefully controlled, socially distanced activities at our centres to enable people to stay safe, well and connected and to address risk of deteriorating physical and mental health.

Extra measures are in place to keep our clients, staff and volunteers well. All activities comply with latest government Covid-19 regulations and are monitored closely.

We continue to offer our innovative and popular alternative service including online socials and courses, telephone welfare calls, and delivery of activity and wellbeing packs. We are also supporting family carers through new online, telephone and face-to-face communication.

To find out more about current day services please contact Chantelle Welsher, Client Services Transformation Manager at chantelle.welsher@reachuk.org or telephone 07834 578704
