FitzRoy supporter Audrey Harris took to the skies – at the age of 86 – in a daredevil tribute to her daughter Angie and to fundraise for FitzRoy.
Last week a group of people we support gathered together for our national service user forum, Nationwide, to discuss FitzRoy strategy and have their say.
Malcolm lives at one of our care homes in Surrey and loves to try new things. He was recently supported to achieve something quite incredible for his birthday present – flying a plane!

One of our care homes in Essex celebrated 40 years since they first opened their doors, supporting 10 people with learning disabilities and autism. Five of the current residents have lived there since we first opened and four have lived there for 25-35 years.

Ashley and Sarah, who are supported by our Norfolk day service, The Maltings, had a great time visiting the local market last week.
We have supported 25 year old Krena since 2016 at one of our supported living services in Birmingham. Since Krena moved in, she’s dreamed of performing on stage but has struggled to find the confidence to do so. After studying drama at college and receiving support from our dedicated staff, Krena finally had the opportunity to fulfill her dream and perform on stage last month.
