How do we meet
the challenge?

The scale of
the challenge

We run regular drop-in centres, known as Hubs, across Suffolk. These allow our members to build meaningful one-to-one friendships with other vulnerable people and volunteer befrienders. We also run weekend and evening social clubs as well as member and volunteer training across the county. 

We aim to provide support, inspiration and development opportunities to all of our existing members, as well as reach out to new ones.

There are currently more than 12,000 adults with a learning disability in Suffolk; approximately one in four with mild mental health conditions and an unknown number who do not access the health and care services they need and are entitled to.

We will continue to identify, reach out to, and support more of these vulnerable people. We will strive to find new and innovative ways to address the demand with the restricted funding available.
