Chailey Heritage Foundation is a pioneering charity providing education, care and transition services for children and young people with complex physical disabilities and health needs.

We are recognised as one of the UK’s leading centres for children and young adults with neurological motor impairment such as cerebral palsy, and we have a national reputation for our work in supporting young people’s communication and developing independence through powered mobility.

Our aim is to provide a stimulating and inclusive environment where all young people are given every opportunity to make progress towards fulfilment and develop life skills in preparation for adulthood.

Our charity encompasses Chailey Heritage School, Chailey Heritage Residential, Chailey Heritage Futures and Chailey Heritage Pathways.
