The difference your gift can make

You don’t have to be wealthy to leave a life-changing gift. All gifts in Wills, whether large or small, make a real difference. Even 1% of your estate would make a huge difference to the lives of disabled and isolated people.

Everyone who chooses to leave a legacy to Livability helps us to strengthen our long-term future. We’re proud of all the people we support and of what we have achieved within our communities.

Read more about the difference our CEO, Dave Webber, sees our work making in the years ahead.

The real difference we are making, together – highlights from last year:

1,000 individuals and families were supported every day by Livability

Livability brings a unique and dynamic offering to the care arena, providing top-quality, person-centred care across a range of services, including residential care, education, supported living, community engagement and wellbeing programmes. With a wide network of staff, volunteers and church partners in the UK, we have at our disposal a huge pool of talent and strength that can do much to support and empower people to enjoy a more liveable community.

270 people were supported in Livability’s residential care homes

All our services, including our 26 residential care homes, are focused on enabling the people that use our services to live full and flourishing lives and to live out the life story that they choose.

97% of participants on the horticultural therapy programme ‘Flourish’ reported an increase in social networks

Through gaining practical hands on experience, skills and knowledge in conservation and horticulture, the aim of the Flourish programme at Livability Holton Lee is to improve participants’ wellbeing, resilience, confidence, self-esteem, skills and motivation.

176 children and young people studied at our schools and colleges

Livability provides educational opportunities for disabled students at Nash College (a further education college) in Bromley, and for those aged 3 to 25 years, at Victoria Education Centre (VEC) in Poole. At the core of both centres’ provision is an emphasis on communication skills, giving students the tools and the confidence to communicate for themselves. This means students start adult life knowing that their story and their experience is valued and can be shared with others.

600 people used our Dementia Friendly Churches training service

Livability works with churches and other local agencies, supporting them to play their part in tackling barriers and working for inclusion. This includes providing audits, training and mentorship services to Christians, Churches and other Christian organisations that will help them to provide dementia friendly practice.
