  • Reach UK Southwell

    Reach started life as Southwell Care Project in 1999. We have grown from a very small, local group to a charity that reaches across the county and supports 150 adults with learning disabilities each week.

    But our roots are still firmly planted in the communities in which we work. Many of our trustees, staff and volunteers live locally to our services and many have caring responsibilities. We know how important it is to get the right support at the right time.
