The people who use our services are at the heart of all we do. It’s their ambitions, interests and desire to go beyond expectation that drives what we provide, every day.

People come to us in a variety of ways; some are referred by carers or health and social professionals, others find out about us through family or friends in the community. We also accept self-referrals and referrals from professionals so if you or someone you know would like to know more about our services, please contact us today to find out more.

You can find out about just some of our clients and their own stories here.

20th Anniversary Service

2019 was the 20th Anniversary of our charity being established. With the kind permission of the Dean and Chapter of Southwell Cathedral, we held a special service at Southwell Minster. We were delighted that so many of our clients, families, volunteers, staff and supporters from near and far could join us on the night.
