Who we are
Assist Trust is a Norwich based progression day service for adults with learning disabilities in Norfolk.
We encourage our members to gradually take on responsibilities and support them to learn about expectations in the real world. This is achieved through offering a wide range of groups, which help individuals to speak up, build confidence and develop friendships with others.
The groups we offer also enable members to develop their independence skills around shopping for, preparing and cooking meals, managing money, being part of the wider community and developing work skills.
Alongside the groups we run, we offer supported employment opportunities; housing services and travel training programmes which are overseen by our in-house occupational therapists.
We are open as a service Monday to Friday, but close for approximately 2 weeks over the Christmas period.
Due to COVID-19 we have decided to put our internal and external work placements, as well as groups that access the community on hold for the time being (with the exception of going to Mousehold Heath and on local walks). We are also currently not offering cooking based groups as a precaution to minimise the risk of COVID 19. Once we feel it is safe to do so we will restart our work placements, cooking and community based groups, working within the relevant COVID 19 guidelines.
