Our chosen charity

"At Pepenbury, we work with a diverse range of people. We primarily support people with a learning disability, but many have additional support needs.
These may include physical disability, specific syndromes, autism, challenging behaviour and dual diagnosis (learning disability and mental health issues) and may need long-term residential care. Others are able to progress to more independent living through training in life and work skills.
Whatever their needs, our services are tailored to meet the needs of the individual, whether that be support for a few hours a week, round the clock care or something in between.
People come to us from across the country to benefit from our specialist services, delivered by our dedicated and friendly staff team."
