The Wellington Youth group and Trax are clubs that offer children and young people a range of experiences, skills and opportunities that are not readily available to those with a learning disability.

Care Support Service

The services team continues to support a growing number of children requiring care and support to enable themselves and their families to experience life to the full. Our team of caring support workers offer support throughout the year. Our commitment to children and young people also extends to ensuring that they are safeguarded from harm.

We work with parents, multi-agency professionals and the local authority to ensure that our services exceed the required regulatory standards and safeguarding needs of children and young people.

The Care support we offer ranges from care in the home to get children and young people ready for the day and ready for bed including personal care, washing, dressing and medication to providing essential social support in the community to encourage independence and social interaction.

Activities for all the Family

Supporting families to have positive time together is important to us as an organisation. We recognise that a family who laughs and smiles together is a family that overcomes a challenge. We are committed to providing activities, respite and support that will help individuals and families as a whole.
