Brief History About us
Following our passion to make life a better place for people with learning disabilities, our journey began in 2000 when we established our first home (Ivy cottage) in West Yorkshire. However, it was only able to better provide for the needs of 10 adults. Sensing the need of the community around us, we put our best foot forward and have since grown to form the other units across Yorkshire.
