About Us

Our purpose

We provide a wide range of high quality, specialist and personalised care and education support to disabled people and their families.

Who we support

We meet the needs of disabled people with cerebral palsy, communication impairments, sensory impairments and complex learning, social care and therapeutic needs.

What we do

We offer a wide range of services to children, young people and adults. Our education services include Hedley’s Percy Hedley School, Hedley’s Northern Counties School, Hedley’s College and residential and respite care for all ages.

Adult services include residential services and an ever increasing variety of day care services.

We also run a hugely successful Employability Project which has just received additional funding from the Big Lottery to continue its work with employers over the next three years.

The Sports Academy offers a wide range of disability sports catering for all ages and its facilities are used not only by many local disabled groups but also for regional and national events.

To make all of this happen we have a dedicated team of fundraisers, who work all year round to raise money that goes directly to provide these vital services, specialist equipment and facilities in the North East that simply wouldn’t exist without your continued support.
