The Norman Laud Association

The principal aim of the charity is to provide quality short break services to children and adults with special needs and complex learning disabilities and to provide family support services.

Founded 1961

  • Mission statement

    Our Objectives are:
    - To relieve sickness and preserve the health of children and adults with disabilities and to advance their education and development.
    - To preserve and protect the health of those caring for children and adults with profound special needs and complex learning disabilities.

    Our services are vital to those families who care for a loved one with special needs. The loved one can depend on their carer for a vast majority of their day and night, although it is a labour of love it can result in being overwhelmed and exhausting for the carer. We at Norman Laud care for their loved ones, who we fondly refer to as "guests" in a safe and supported environment, so our "guests" have fun, variety of activity, and socialising with the other guests, the carer gets to have a somewhat essential break. We fund this work through voluntary income and require at least £200,000, to operate at our current high standard. In December 2011 we received "outstanding" from an OFSTED inspection, with which we are very proud.
    Our significant activities are:
    - Daycare and overnight services for children and adults with complex learning disabilities.
    - Support for those with additional health care needs.
    - Family support services, advocacy and mentoring services.
    - Partnership working with other agencies.
    - Fundraising activities through the receipt of donated goods into its 2 charity shops, fundraising through corporate organisations, legacy marketing and the local community.
