About Us

As a company, Vision25 are driven by an ultimate goal; for all young adults to be as independent as possible by fully including them in all aspects of the community.

 

We are led by a Director, who brings with her vast experience of working with special needs, specialising in ICT & photography.  Alongside her is a number of dedicated and highly skilled volunteers who share her vision. All our staff at Vision25 are DBS (formerly CRB) cleared.  Our entire team are keen to welcome young adults aged 19 years+ to offer an array of enrichment activities.

 

We have raised a substantial amount of money so far and will continue to do so. This is for our young adults to also to enjoy endless activities in our local area and beyond. An example of some future adventures include a tea time social club, theatre visits, dance tuition,  archery, inclusive visit to The Calvert Trust, film making experience, and a trip to London.

We envisage to take our members on long weekend trips to disability friendly holidays throughout the year and holiday.  Details will be posted via our news feed.  

Support provided to every member will be tailored and personalised. This will develop new skills, whilst focusing on their strengths, rather than being defined by their weaknesses.  Working directly with young adults will allow them to voice concerns, opinions and preferences on activities and services available.

 

Our intention is to help young adults develop independent living skills throughout their time at Vision25. This will be achieved by participating in activities both at the centre and within the local community.
