• Creating a Community Where Everyone Belongs

Creating a community where everyone belongs

My Life is a charity that connects people with their communities. We work with people of all ages and abilities who need support to live a good life, including children, young people and adults with disabilities, people with ill health or age-related problems, and people who generally feel lonely or isolated within their communities. We offer a range of inclusive indoor and outdoor day time opportunities for people of all ages and abilities, all under one roof/sky!

Our Story

Our response to the Covid-19 pandemic

We are dedicated to the care of everybody who visits our sites and the families we support in the community.

We are following government guidelines and have introduced a number of new processes, including asking all visitors to provide us with permission to record their contact details as part of the Test and Trace process.

We’d like to thank you for your support as we continue to do our best for everyone, despite these challenging circumstances.
