Who we are
Independence Project provides day care, day services, support, and opportunities for young adults with learning disabilities and autism.
Our day centre in Chelmsford ensures all of our members learn whilst having fun in a safe environment. With an abundance of indoor activities, day opportunities, and holidays, our ultimate goal for the people we support is to see them achieve independence!
We are on a mission to highlight the difficulties that people face across Essex and strive to make a difference whilst impacting individuals’ lives and their families.
We have built a team of specialists and experts that have the passion and drive to offer the best care and support for our members. We have extensive knowledge and experience encompassing many areas and facets of peoples lives.
We are advocates and champions for people with disabilities who strongly believe everyone deserves the opportunity to achieve independence!
