The Life Project was started by a group of Christian families with young adults who have learning disabilities

The group formed in 2009 and was registered as a charity and limited company in 2011

Initially a fellowship group met on a regular basis – this has continued to this day and is now known as ‘Springs’. A range of social activities were organised to develop a sense of community amongst the families who were caring for both children and adults with learning disabilities. Discussions were also ongoing about developing ‘homes for life’ now known as supported living accommodation – something we are still concerned to facilitate today!

In 2014 daytime activities were developed at the Old Acorn Barn in Englishcombe and since then other projects have been developed, including drop-in support for parents and carers.

From the beginning everything planned and developed has been rooted in Christian principles and ethos, and our mission has continued to be the promotion and protection of the health and well-being of people with learning disabilities and their families in Bath and surrounding areas.
