The inspiration for halow came from Harriet, Amber, Laura, Oliver and William, each having a learning disability. Their parents, all friends, 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 positive and happy lives, near their own friends and families in Surrey, the parents established the halow project.
From one room and one person in 2006, halow has grown to employ 20 office based staff, with 45 Buddies and 55 volunteers. We support just under 200 young people in their quest to lead meaningful, independent lives.
