Where Next Association
People with learning difficulties want the same as everyone else. By supporting us you can help to provide a wonderful environment in which they can have purpose, dignity, self esteem and respect. 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.

The Brainwave Centre
Since 1982, Brainwave has worked with more than 3,200 families throughout the country to deliver individual home-based Therapy Programmes that help children with additional needs.
Brainwave supports children with physical and/or cognitive disabilities, whether caused by brain injury like cerebral palsy, a genetic condition like Down syndrome, autism, or general developmental delay.
Importantly and uniquely, the Brainwave Team empowers parents and carers to deliver therapy to their children at home as they believe the family home is where children respond best – with the people whose love and care is unparalleled.
This is a Charity that really does change children’s lives.
