The inspiration for halow came from five young people: Harriet, Amber, Laura, Oliver and William, each of who have a learning disability. Their parents came together at the beginning of 2006 concerned with the prospect for their children's future and others like them. Passionate that these young people should lead fulfilled and happy lives, the parents established the halow project.
From one room and one person in 2006, halow has grown to employ over 60 members of staff, with 30 Buddies and many volunteers. We support over 170 young people in their quest to lead meaningful, independent lives.
