Description of activity
We’re very much a local charity. We support disabled people in both Kingston upon Thames and in Richmond, and have been making a difference to lives for over 60 years.
We exist for one clear reason: to help those with disabilities – and their parents or carers – to truly enhance and improve their lives. Hence our name. Specifically, we support service users of all ages – children, teenagers, young adults and adults.
We do this in a surprising variety of ways and settings – supporting people in their homes and out in the community through our 1 to 1 support, as well as through our walk-in daytime services and short breaks or respite. We also provide regular after school clubs.
Being a registered charity, we are driven, not by profit, but by our commitment to be responsive to our service users’ unique needs. All our staff are dedicated, trained and supported, to provide the right care for each individual, and to providing a personally tailored approach.
We’re an exceptional local employer. Often, those who had never considered social work are drawn to the idea of working with us through word of mouth – by hearing about the exceptional careers we can offer to young people who want to make a real difference in their working life.
