Since 1795, Norwood has always sought to improve the lives of the most vulnerable people in society.

Each year, Norwood supports 7000 people with learning disabilities, and children and families in need.

Norwood provides vital, personalised services to the Jewish communities in London and the South East, believing that everyone, irrespective of ability or circumstance, has the right to live the life they choose and achieve their goals.

Delivered by 1200 staff and supported by 800 dedicated volunteers, Norwood provides a wide range of Children & Family Services and Adult Learning Disability Services in pursuit of this vision.
