Welcome to The Enable Project page
What we do
The Enable Project is a ground-breaking initiative which promotes real inclusion for people with learning disabilities,
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and mental health conditions.
We provide safe and friendly support as participants take part in daily activities to develop their skills and confidence during the transition from youth to adulthood, and beyond.
Our focus is on true integration. We don’t run a day centre. We don’t hide people away. We have a timetable of activities that take place out in the community. Participants play a very active role in deciding which activities make it onto the timetable, and our days are always an adventure.
One size does not fit all!
We are a person centred team, and we recognise that everyone is an individual - we don't like to put people into boxes.
Some of our participants join other participants as part of a group, but this approach isn't for everyone.
We have a lot of people who work with us on a 1:1 basis, and some people have a mix of 1:1 support during some sessions, and 2:1 or 3:1 support during other sessions.
At The Enable Project, we do things your way.
We're here to facilitate your learning and your adventures, and we do that in a way that is supportive, person centred, open and honest.
The support that we offer is bespoke and always tailored to your needs. So don't be afraid to get in touch - let's have a chat about what you're looking for!
Who we are
The Enable Project is bought to you by Redwood Home Care Ltd, an organisation which is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Unlike a lot of traditional day services, we’re a family run, nurse led organisation. We’re person centred, and our objective is to work with each participant to help them achieve their own personal goals.
Because we’re regulated by the CQC, we’re able to provide personal care if required, so you don’t have to miss out if you need a little extra support. Our Activity coordinators are fully trained and educated on all relevant policies and procedures, and we take a lot of pride in looking after them, so they can look after you.
We use state of the art software to prepare and maintain personal plans for each participant. This is where we keep a record of your achievements and your goals. It’s where we plan with you what skills you’d like to master and how we can help to make that happen.
If you want us to, we can invite your family members, social worker or other healthcare professionals to join your account so they can also see how you’re doing, and provide some input into your plan.
Here is some of the feedback from our clients about us.

“Dear Enable Project
Sorry for the late email but I made a promise to a young lad today that I would share his news!
This young lad, as will know has spent the last year crippled by anxiety and a fear of attending school. He is settled at home, has local friends, and school is the last piece of his puzzle.
This afternoon he called me in a very excited state after he attended school as planned with your support worker James today, and then felt strong enough for James to leave him.
This young lad stated that he felt a bit worried but knew he would be okay so he stayed till 12 in school without support!
He is so proud of himself (as he should be) and now wants to attend full time next week as he said he’s not scared anymore.
Even writing this email I have butterflies in my stomach as this has been a massive journey for him and each of your staff have played such an amazing role in making this happen. I promised him I would tell you all as he wants the world to know how happy he is!
I’m sure this is not the end of his battles with anxiety but the improvement is amazing and he is starting to see life beyond professional support. This is amazing for where he started, when I picked him up, in April 2019!
His mum has been amazing as always for him and been integral to getting him settled and trusting adults again. He now has a very exciting future.
Thank you everyone!”
