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

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.”

CoronavirusDue to the social distancing measures of Coronavirus not all of Lifeworks services are running as they usually do.

Our residential services, Robins and Sesame, continue to run and have provided a safe home for the residents. Unfortunately, we have had to stop the short stay service at Robins for the time being. Our specialist College was closed for the Easter holidays but has now re-opened for a small number of students. Community Projects’ in-person services have been put on hold but the team have been very creative, launching Safe-Space a new online platform to provide a much-needed service to young people who are feeling isolated at home.

We are still working our way through these times where there is uncertainty and we are responding to guidance and instruction as information is sent to us. We look forward to the time when we can re-instate all of our services but the safety and wellbeing of our service users, families and staff is our top priority always.

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
