The Friends of the Aldingbourne Trust is an independent charity formed in 1995 committed to supporting the work of the Trust. Everything they do is dedicated to facilitating the Trust’s activities and promoting independence and inclusion for people with learning disabilities and autism.
What do the Friends do?
The Friends’ activities help support the Trust by raising awareness of the excellent work carried out and by promoting specific projects and services.
We make a difference - see what the people we support think:
‘I like coming to the Aldingbourne Country Centre to work, I have lots of friends. I’ve been here since I was 18 and the Friends help to raise money which helps us to do more and more, It’s like a family here’
‘Being part of the Friends makes me feel like I am making a difference to the Trust, I have helped put on events such as fashion shows and I have also taken part in drama workshops. I enjoy helping people and working as a team, I have made many friends being part of the Friends.’
‘The Friends have taught me to be kinder to people, they have also made it possible for me to go to Lodge Hill. I had a go on the zip wire which was very exciting. I really enjoyed getting together with my
friends as a group.’
