Hamelin Trust is a leading Essex based charity for supporting people with learning disabilities and their families. We do this through a variety or services and social enterprise projects.
These include short break residential respite services for children and adults, supported accommodation for four adults, a resource centre, community outreach services.
We also provide training and employment opportunities through a number of social enterprises including IT recycling, furniture restoration, horticulture and bio-diesel.
A depot facilities supports collection and distribution of items for three charity shops located in South Essex.
From 1983 our vision has been and remains:
People with learning disabilities should be enabled to live as fulfilled and independent a life as possible in accordance with their wishes and wherever they choose.
Services which enable such a lifestyle should be provided in partnership with those with learning disabilities, their families or advocates, voluntary organisations and statutory services.
The partnership should seek to provide services within the person's own community, enabling them to contribute to that community, and to retain and develop local links, friendships and interests.
