We are the disabilities trust

We are a leading national charity offering specialist community-based and residential support for adults with acquired brain injury, complex physical or learning disabilities and for people with autism, including those in education. We are taking the risks of coronavirus very seriously, and are doing everything that we can to keep the people we care for safe. We are still taking referrals for people who need us.
