We are a Nottinghamshire charity supporting people with learning disabilities to live happier, healthier lives in their community.  People with learning disabilities in our county face a higher than average risk of poor health, loneliness and social isolation. Our centres Reach Southwell, Reach Newark, Reach Mansfield, Flower Pod and Flower Pod Newark support people with learning disabilities to enjoy a better quality of life in their own community. We do this by offering courses, social activities, holidays and best practice projects to find new solutions to problems.  We also offer quality one-to-one care support through Reach Learning Disability Care CIC (rated outstanding by the Care Quality Commission).


Covid-19 – update on day service provision November to December 2020

Following initial closure in March, in the past months we have been pleased to offer our clients carefully managed, socially distanced support activities at our centres in line with latest government Covid-19 regulations.

We have put in place extra measures, such as reduced occupancy, increased cleaning of surfaces that are touched frequently and one-way systems at our centres to keep our clients, staff and volunteers well. All activities are risk assessed and monitored closely by experienced managers.

We know that coming to our centres is an important part of a healthy routine and offers essential wellbeing support for our clients and their families.

After robust review and consideration, we aim to continue providing Covid-19 secure activities at Reach centres during the next period of restrictions from 5th November to 2nd December and as Government advice allows.

We will also continue to offer our innovative and popular alternative service including online socials and courses for clients plus support for family carers.
