Hamelin Trust is a leading Essex based charity for supporting people with learning disabilities and their families. We do this by providing short break services, a resource centre, supported accommodation, and outreach services within the community and individual’s homes.
We also provide training and employment opportunities through a number of independent and joint ventures.
From 1983 our vision has been and remains:
- People with learning disabilities should be enabled to live as fulfilled and independent a life as possible in accordance with their wishes and wherever they choose.
- Services which enable such a lifestyle should be provided in partnership with those with learning disabilities, their families or advocates, voluntary organisations and statutory services.
- The partnership should seek to provide services within the person’s own community, enabling them to contribute to that community, and to retain and develop local links, friendships and interests.
