The Elfrida Society
The Elfrida Society (Elfrida) started its work with people with learning disabilities 100 years ago. Initially known as Elfrida Rathbone Islington, we continue to build on our work with people with learning disabilities, in Islington and surrounding boroughs, to this date. Throughout our long history The Elfrida Society has always been proud of its cherished community base and strong record of campaigning for inclusivity and against injustice. To ensure that people with learning disabilities have the same chances and opportunities to succeed in life and that their voice and rights are represented.
We are particularly proud to be an accessible and accountable employer of people with learning disabilities. Currently our organisation is supported by a strong team of 22 staff, including 14 employees with learning disabilities and a dedicated team of volunteers.
Our vision is for a better world, social justice and equality of opportunity for people with learning disabilities.
Our mission is to support and work with people who have learning disabilities. Our aim is to provide services and support that help people with learning disabilities build connections, have happy and independent lives and have fun.
Our values of trust, care, choice and opportunity reflect our history and have been developed in consultation with our service users, staff and volunteers. These values are embedded into our mission, vision and overall aim and objectives of the organisation and all our projects.
