We provide this by giving them an opportunity to have realistic work experience, giving them the chance to do things most people take for granted.
Established in 1984, Where Next is a local charity providing quality day services for people with special needs who wish to do something meaningful with their time in a real working environment with a family feel about it.
Work experience options include horticulture, garden maintenance, small parts assembly and woodworking. Support is provided by our dedicated, qualified, caring team of staff in a safe environment. All our staff are DBS checked.
By monitoring, recording and reviewing people’s progress we are able to tailor activities to suit and through our structured approach, we promote self esteem, independence and respect by recognising and nurturing individual’s potential. Our fun activities put all these skills into practice.

Camphill Foundation UK
Camphill Foundation provides much-needed financial support to projects which greatly enhance the quality of life of adults, children and young people with learning disabilities. Camphill communities throughout the UK and Ireland offer safe and supportive environments in a variety of semi-rural and urban settings where individuals can feel at home and develop their personal abilities and interests. There is also a strong sense of belonging to a diverse but cohesive intentional community and supported living network. Work opportunities abound, giving a real sense of meaning, purpose and achievement, which is essential for a person’s well-being.
Camphill Foundation supports development projects such as the building of new accommodation, establishing new workshops and facilities, developing agricultural and horticultural activities, providing new equipment, and various educational, training, cultural and social initiatives. Support is often in the form of grants to help projects get started and loans at a low rate of interest, usually over several years.
Supporting Camphill Foundation means also fostering a new understanding and recognition of people with disabilities and enabling them to develop and make use of their astonishing talents and skills as fully engaged, talented and co-responsible members of the community carrying out important and meaningful work which is both fulfilling for them and of great value to others.

The Sequal Trust
We are The Sequal Trust, a national fundraising Charity founded in 1969 which is committed to bridging the communication gap for disabled people. By providing suitable assistive technology to people who need it most, we aim to increase the quality of life for those who are non-verbal, have incoherent speech, or who have learning and communication difficulties.
Helping people see the person – not the disability, and to provide the means to set lively minds free, continue to be our prime objectives. We aim to achieve this by making sure each of our disabled members reach their full potential through the provision of suitable communication equipment such as speech aids, light writers and grid pads.
