Welcome to Hansel

Through providing a range of services and activities Hansel assists people with additional support needs, and their families, to make the most of life each and every day. Our approach is to deliver the right support; for an individual to feel empowered, to find their voice, and experience equality, choice, dignity and respect.

Freedom to be heard. Freedom of choice. Freedom to live!

Employability

Hansel 3e operations (employment, education and enterprise)

For most of us work plays an important part in our lives so through our Hansel 3e operations (employment, education and enterprise) we provide a range of opportunities for people with additional support needs to prepare for and be supported in employment, and for anyone to contribute through meaningful and rewarding volunteer activities. Although our Hansel 3e social enterprise focus is on employability outcomes for individuals, support is also provided to Hansel’s wider care services team and customers.

Support Us

Hansel Foundation and Hansel Alliance work hand in hand to identify our strategic aims and set out what our fundraising activities will be to help us achieve them. In order to deliver new projects and services, Hansel Foundation engages in fundraising activity both from our valued supporters within our community and also from grant making bodies, including charitable trust funders. We build long lasting relationships with our supporters and are indebted to everyone who chooses to support Hansel, helping us to personalise care and support opportunities to give each person we assist the freedom to live.
