Brandon Trust exists to enable adults and children with learning disabilities and autism to live the lives they choose.

It ranges from a few hours of enabling support a week, through to life- long residential care for people with complex needs. Much of our work sits within the ‘supported living’ model; a highly person-centred approach which sees people live in their own homes.

We’re looking forward to how, in partnership with the people we support, we can shape the future for people with learning disabilities. We’re striving to build a connected society by:
More about Brandon
Brandon was established in 1994 and we currently support around 1,600 people across southern England, the Midlands and London. Our head office is based on Bristol.
We have a wealth of experience in working with people with complex needs whose behaviour can sometimes challenge the environment in which they live, or with profound and multiple learning disabilities. Our support is often intensive and we employ around 2,000 staff across all of our services.
We also run a number of innovative community projects that offer people a chance to learn new skills, be creative and productive and importantly, to have the opportunity to undertake paid work or volunteering.
Our small fundraising team focusses on securing funding for development projects and activities that enhance the lives of people we support.
