We are committed to bringing about positive change for our clients and their families, enabling them to lead richer and more resilient lives.
We provide a range of trauma-informed services for children, young people, adults and professionals. These include psychotherapy, advocacy, campaigning and other support services which aim to prevent abuse and equip individuals and their families to come to terms with their experiences and live more positive lives.
We also provide specialist training, supervision, reflective practice and consultancy to equip agencies and providers in developing and delivering trauma-informed services.
Our vision is that all people with learning disabilities and autistic people who experience trauma are empowered to thrive.
