The Aldingbourne Trust is an innovative charity and we have a wide variety of projects where we support adults with learning disablities and / or autism to develop their skills.
Adopt a Station
Since 2007 Aldingbourne Trusts award winning Community Team has worked in partnership with Southern Railway to
successfully deliver their “Adopt a Station” project.
Supported by over 30 volunteers, they are maintaining and creating attractive floral displays in over 30 of Southern Railway’s stations and are still expanding.
Working to enhance the overall impression of the stations means individuals learn valuable life and work skills like team work, time-keeping, independent travel and work ethics. The end results stand as a great advertisement for the contribution adults with learning disabilities can make to the wider community.

Our team welcomes local schools to visit and we deliver interactive workshops linked to KS1 and 2 curriculums providing an Educational Outdoor Learning Experience
We run a wide range of workshops for children throughout the year:
Woodland Walk Workshops
A safe and secure place for children to learn about wildlife, bugs, trees and flora through a series of short activities. Kids get active and have fun searching for what lives and grows in the wood, then take time to reflect, discuss and appreciate the woodland environment.
Kids learn and create using their hands and imagination and get to take their work home.
