about us

We believe people with learning disability have the right to have a good job, be fit and healthy and have fun. Our support workers will work with you to find out what you are good at and what you like. We will build on your talents. We want to help you lead an independent life and have the freedom to make choices.

We work in small groups in a training kitchen, café and a bakery. We have a craft room, IT room and a large studio space for music and drama. We have a community kitchens and large gardens with vegetable plots.  

Journey staff support people out and about at local gyms, sports centres, theatres, shops and much more. Every Hub has days out. We really enjoy going to the beach and in to the National Park.
