A Helping Hand
There was a gap
Learning disability was taboo
And the learning disabled were lacking
Welcome to Yad Voezer. The place where the gap is closed. The place where disability is appreciated, where special individuals learn how to thrive and flourish. Ever since 1975, when Yad Voezer first extended its helping hand, learning disabled people have a place to call home, make friends and develop skills.
What We Do
Our Family Support department offers real help and support to families who are frequently under a great deal of stress. It also acts as an advocacy for learning disabled clients and their families, attending hospitals and Social Services reviews to support clients and their families. Support for accessing Government funding is also available.
The Yad Voezer Community Day Centre opened in May 2011. The Centre is a hub of activity where people with learning disabilities and mental health issues have the opportunity to involve themselves in numerous exciting, educational, vocational, social and leisure activities. The clubs are a valuable opportunity to explore new skills in an accepting and encouraging environment with the help of friendly and welcoming staff.
Yad Voezer runs two Registered Residential Homes which cater for people with profound challenging behaviour who require intense support 24 hours a day. The Charity also manages a Supported Housing/Living project where people with learning disabilities and/or mental health issues are able to live more independently in the community.
