It’s a great place to work and a fun team to work with.

The Bevern Trust — (Formerly part of the Agape Trust) Bevern View was founded by parents in 1999 in response to concerns at the lack of facilities for young people with complex needs. It aimed to provide a home for young people for as long as they choose to live there.

Those with complex needs, like all young people, reach the point where they need greater degree of independence from their families, and should be helped to achieve this independence, however profound their disability.
To do this they need our help and support

Parents and carers of people who are profoundly disabled often reach a point where they are exhausted and cannot care for them indefinitely at home, but do so at risk to themselves because there is no alternative.

We aim to provide that alternative, your help can make it happen.
