What is Guideposts’ experience?

Guideposts has over 50 years’ experience supporting people to live in their community, and take part in activities they would otherwise be excluded from.

Since the end of Covid restrictions, the people we support with learning disabilities have told us about their renewed enthusiasm for going on trips and excursions. We want to help.

Some of the experiences we have organised since 2021 are:
