Seashell Trust

Specialist care and education for young people with a combination of deafness, blindness, autism, physical disabilities, profound and multiple learning difficulties, and significant brain damage.

Founded 1823

  • Mission statement

    Our charity is dedicated to providing a creative, happy and secure environment for children and adults with complex and severe learning disabilities which include little or no language abilities. Across our school, college and residential care homes, and through the work we do beyond our own facilities, we deliver programmes of care that are individually tailored, promote independence and help build confidence and self-esteem in the children and adults we work with.

    Our Royal School Manchester is a mixed day and residential, co-educational, non-maintained special school which caters for children and young people with severe and complex learning difficulties featuring significant communication, behavioural and sensory impairments.

    Our Royal College Manchester is an independent specialist day and residential further education college for young people with complex low incidence special education needs involving a combination of cognitive, physical, sensory and behavioural disabilities which impact on their ability to communicate.

    Our care services offer residential places and short break services for children and young people with severe and complex learning difficulties featuring significant communication, behavioural and sensory impairments.
