Welcome to Chailey Heritage Foundation
Chailey Heritage Foundation provides education and care services and is one of the UK’s leading centres for children and young people with complex neurodisabilities.
Most of the young people accessing our services have severe cerebral palsy, many have visual and/or other sensory impairments. All are wheelchair users and very few have verbal communication.
Our expertise is in maximising independence and choice, developing effective communication and providing powered mobility opportunities. Read more.
