Affinity Trust helps over 900 people with learning disabilities across England and Scotland live as independently as possible. We’ve been supporting people with learning disabilities for more than 25 years.
We are dedicated to supporting people with learning disabilities to live the lives they want to. Whether helping someone to live in their own home, providing opportunities to make new friends, or supporting people into work, we aim to ensure that those we support can live life to its fullest.
We support people with a range of needs, from those who need little support to people who require round-the-clock, specialist support. We have a strong track record of supporting those with more complex needs, including people who other organisations have not been able to support appropriately.
We are a growing, national charity. Underpinning our success is our belief that everyone with a learning disability has the right to an active and fulfilling life.
Many of the people we support have come from institutional settings. We have worked with them to transform their level of independence and often, as a result, their quality of life. Supported living is our main area of support and we are committed to offering this model to people with learning disabilities in preference to residential care homes.
