Brandon Trust was formed in 1994 by the merger of the Buttress Trust and the South Avon Housing Association. Today, we are an independent charity, supporting around 1,600 children, young people and adults with a learning disability, autism or both.
Around 1.5 million people in the UK have a learning disability. Despite significant improvements in care and support in the last 20 years, people with a learning disability still experience significant inequalities.
We’re striving to change this. We aim to enable the people we support to live their lives in the way they choose. To reach for their dreams and be all they can be. To live free.
We do that by providing individualised, high-quality support that is genuinely life-enhancing. This ranges from light-touch enabling services through to long-term residential care for people with complex needs. Headquartered in Bristol, we operate across the south of England and south Midlands, from London through Warwickshire to Cornwall. Our support is designed and delivered by a staff team of over 2,000 and underpinned by our values.
We are committed to working with the people we support, and those who surround them, to shape a future where every person with a learning disability will be empowered to live their life to its full potential.
