THE CHARITY provides educational, recreational and leisure facilities for mentally, physically and sensory disabled users. The Albrighton Trust has a successful record of supporting people with special needs and their carers over the past 15 years by providing high standard facilities and offering a range of esteem-building activities.

Users can increase their skills, particularly horticultural students who have use of the greenhouse, raised nursery beds, 35 themed gardens, waterways and wooded areas with a wildlife habitat. Therapeutic users have a full range of horticultural opportunities as well as Arts, Drama, Angling, lawn sports and Environmental projects. Additionally, the Resource Centre offers a comfortable lounge with kitchen and disabled-specific toilet facilities as well as access to the internet for those who need to research a little more information about one of the courses or just get in a bit of IT practice using the Assisted Technology Kit, provided especially for those with sight or cognitive impediments.
