able 2 achieve

able2achieve supports individuals with learning disabilities, mental health, and other associated disabilities. We support individuals in a variety of different ways from everyday living skills to attending social events such as concerts.

Rather than the impersonal term client or service user we use the term Learner. Whilst more inclusive, the term learner also reminds us that we are all learners we all learn from each other and we are all motivated to do.  Seeing ourselves as part of the learning process encourages the mutual respect that we feel is necessary for all individuals.

able2achieve was started in 2010 by founder and CEO, Rupert Elliott. Having worked in the special educational sector and later with housing and residential care, Rupert had a vision of a day provision which catered for individuals. The day provision was to provide vocational activities geared to support individuals in gaining work or helping to live a little more independently.

His vision also included a supported living home, where he could provide support to individuals with learning difficulties and promote independence. Breaking away from the carers doing all the work, to an environment where the carer stands alongside an individual and teaches them how to achieve a task.


To enable personal achievement and progression by developing essential skills and self-confidence through learning, living and working.
