How Vision Homes Association began
In the late 1980s a group of parents began holding meetings to discuss their children’s future care, 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 ageing 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 to changing this situation led from informal meetings to a committee that strived to make a difference in these young people’s 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.
