About Brandon Trust

Brandon was formed in 1994 with a mission to ensure people with learning disabilities and/or autism are enabled to live the lives they choose – and that overarching intention, to contribute to the creation of a more equitable society, remains unchanged today.

As an independent charity, we do that by providing individualised, high-quality support that is genuinely life-enhancing.

Our support ranges from light-touch enabling services in people’s own homes through to 24-hour support in residential care with nursing. We also offer children’s play schemes and short-break respite services, that all deliver life-changing experiences for individuals and their families.

In addition, supported employment opportunities are available in our not-for-profit social enterprises.

Headquartered in Bristol for three decades, we now operate across the south of England and south Midlands, from London through to Warwickshire and Cornwall, and more than 1,600 children, young people and adults receive our support.

Delivered by a team of more than 2,000 staff, we are committed to working with the people we support and those close to them, to shape a future where every person with a learning disability and/or autism can be empowered to live their life to its full potential.
