ABOUT US

 

Willow Green is an independent college providing programmes for young adults aged 18-25 years with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.

We run education programmes funded by the Local Authority focussing on life and work skills for which a current Education Health and Care Plan is required.  We also support preparation for adulthood day service provision funded by adult social care.

 

Our vision is to empower young people with special educational needs and disabilities, through the delivery of practical and skill based programmes that will enable them to participate fully in society as independent, mature and responsible individuals.

 

We aim to create a familiar, supportive and local environment which will further the lives of young people with SEND through high quality, bespoke development programmes based on their individual needs. 

 

Our programmes provide a foundation for lifelong learning and wellbeing.  They focus on essential and transferrable, work, economic, social and life skills which will enable increased independence and self-determination.
