The Treloar Trust provides education, care, therapy, medical support and independence training to young people with physical disabilities from all over the UK and overseas. Our aim is to prepare these young people for adult life, giving them the confidence and skills to achieve their full potential.
The main areas in which we work are the non-maintained Nursery and School (from 2 to 19 years) and College (from 16 to 25 years). In School we challenge young people and nurture their abilities to prepare them for the next stage in their lives, our aim being that every student leaves having achieved at least one nationally recognised qualification. In College our aim is to enable all learners to achieve their long-term goals of a more independent life and make a meaningful contribution to their community, including Higher Education and employment.
Founded in 1907 Treloar's is a registered charity with a turnover of around £19 million. Most of our income comes from fees paid by local authorities or by private funding but we also need to raise approximately £2 million every year to keep Treloar's at the forefront of education and services for physically disabled people.
We also offer a range of Outreach Services to the wider disabled community and let the campus facilities to local sports and activity groups and for residential stays.
“I really like Treloar's. If there is one thing I could change it would be to make it a forever place or stay as long as I can because it is one of the best places in the country for disabled people." College student quoted by the Care Quality Commission (CQC)
