together we’ll make sure the families we support receive the right care at the right time

    You will help to ensure that we meet the individual needs of each family whether that is by offering them a caring home from home, the opportunity to learn  or exciting adventures, fun and friendship. 

A gift to Lifeworks will help us to continue to meet the needs of people we support. Please donate today.

Whether you want to make a one-off gift or a regular donation, your donation will help to build independence, opportunities and friendships for the people we support.

How your gift could help

Every donation from you means the world to us, however you choose to make it. Whether it is a one off gift, monthly donation or by fundraising for us – know that it will make a huge difference to the lives of the people we support.

FRIENDSHIP, INDEPENDENCE AND A LIFELINE FOR FAMILIES

PERSONALLY I WOULD FEEL LOST WITHOUT LIFEWORKS. I LIKE THE COMMUNITY FEELING I’VE GOT, LIKE WHEN WE GO TO THE BEACH FOR THE SURFING DAYS AND THE OTHER FAMILIES ARE THERE. NO ONE IS JUDGING YOU, NO ONE IS JUDGING DAN, OR ME. THE STAFF ARE AMAZING – THEY GO ABOVE AND BEYOND..

Read Full Story

 At Lifeworks, Dan feels really valued as a person, that he is an important part of the group. The activities give him just that bit of independence – like most 16 year-olds they enable him to do his own thing. But it is the friendships at Lifeworks he gets most out of.

He has Global Development Delay, which sees him go through life generally very happy, but he can repeatedly ask the same questions and needs to be constantly occupied. Whilst is hard to say, it is nice to be able to have a break from caring when he goes to Lifeworks. 

I recommend Lifeworks to everyone that I meet – even in the supermarket. Lifeworks is an amazing thing – the staff and the people, the volunteers. It has been good for the whole family. If we didn’t have Lifeworks anymore it would be very upsetting. It has been so good for Dan.”

CoronavirusSocial distancing guidelines mean that Lifeworks services may be subject to change or not running as they usually do

Keeping people safe is always our top priority. We will run services in the usual way if we feel it is safe to do so or if we are advised not to by central and local Government.

We are currently offering short-breaks at our Robins children's service. Our Community Projects team continue to offer a varied programme of online activities via our platform, Safe-Space. Whatever social distancing measures are in place over the coming months, we will endeavour to offer engaging activities for everyone via this channel.

Please continue to find out more about our services and get in touch with us to discuss them at any time. Email [email protected] or call 01803 840 744
