Description Aims and Objectives

The society is a local charitable organisation, which operates from the Ron Short Centre at Beau Sejour. It is committed to help people with physical and sensory disabilities of all ages in the Bailiwick in a variety of ways, including direct, social, financial and welfare assistance. It also runs a sheltered workshop at the Ron Short Centre, Beau Sejour on five days a week, producing a range of goods for sale to the public. The ladies enjoy a handicrafts afternoon each week, the men have two social afternoons.

The society is keen to encourage its younger members educationally and socially, and has a thriving Youth and Social club. Competent staff and/or helpers ably supervise all activities.

Organisation and Management

By an Executive Committee of twelve members with a salaried Centre Manager and a Work-shop Supervisor, assisted by two part-time paid staff.

The running expenses are largely met by donations, legacies, and many varied fund-raising activities. A contribution from the Board of Health is designed to assist with the running the Sheltered Workshop, Centre and salaries etc. Whilst the main requirement is financial, there is the occasional need to supplement the Society’s team of volunteer helpers (i.e. with drivers, fund-raisers, etc.)
