Supporter care information
At SeeAbility, we believe that with the right support, people with learning disabilities, autism and sight loss can live ambitious lives – achieving things they never thought possible.
Whether it’s forming more friendships, enjoying new experiences, or finding employment, our aim is for inclusive communities where people with disabilities can live, love, thrive and belong as equals in society.
The people we support challenge us all to rethink disability and inclusion. Thanks to the generosity of kind supporters like you, we know we can make inclusion a reality by ensuring every voice is heard and that no one with a disability is left behind.
