Charity seeking help to find a new home as workload grows
A charity that supports people with autism and other behavioural disabilities is looking for a new home.
Last year Tomorrow’s Voices, which is currently based in Happy Valley Road, expanded its services to help adults as well as children.
But the increased workload now means that the charity has outgrown its current premises.
Thea Furbert, chairwoman of the organisation’s board, said: “We are hoping that the community can help us in our search for finding that special space for our centre.
“We’ve searched and visited many locations but what has been presented just isn’t suitable for our clients and their families. We are hoping with this appeal that the wider community can help.”
A spokeswoman for the group added: “With the introduction of its ‘Thriving Beyond 21’ programme last year, Tomorrow’s Voices now provide a continuation of services to allow for adults with cognitive, behavioural and developmental disabilities to have little to no interruption as they work on skills that will support them through their entire life span.
“While the search is on for a new expanded permanent space that will provide all of the necessary accommodations so that the organisation can continue to provide the most effective services for the community and their clients, the charity is in need of expediting the process and potentially finding an interim location for the short term as they search for the perfect location for their permanent home.
“With the support of the community, Tomorrow’s Voices is hoping to find both a short-term and long-term solution that allows for the continuation of support so that their clients can be successful, well-rounded, contributing members of society and that no programmes will be affected during this important transition for the centre.”
