Our History

How Vision Homes Association began

In the late 1980’s a group of parents began holding their own meetings to discuss the future care of their children who all attended RNIB Rushton Hall School, Northamptonshire.

At that time, they found that there were no other organisations that would support young adults who had multiple disabilities and help them to lead full and independent lives.

Many would leave school and, at best, be cared for by their aging families. Others, who were not so fortunate, would end up living in institutions and hospitals, with little chance of achieving their goals.

The group’s commitment in wanting to change this situation, led from informal meetings to a committee that strived to make a difference for these young peoples lives. Thus Vision Homes Association was born.

We are a non-profit making organisation, (registered charity number 1017893) governed by a board of trustees who meet regularly and ensure that VHA is fulfilling its charitable aims.
