The inspiration for halow came from five young people's names: 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 over 40 memebrs of staff, with 30 Buddies and many volunteers. We support just under 170 young people in their quest to lead meaningful, independent lives.
