All about us

Welcome to The Butterfly Project. The ‘Project’. A home-from-home. An open door.

All about us

Welcome to The Butterfly Project. The ‘Project’. A home-from-home. An open door.

Some say we’re a forward-thinking, community-focused, socially-adventurous day centre for adults with learning disabilities. The people who come to us say:

“It’s the best place I’ve ever been! ”

 – Project-er

Whatever the challenge is, we’re ready for it!

Every day we strive to provide something ground-breaking. Something unique.

Our mission is that everyone has the right to live their lives without fear. That when our guys come to the Butterfly Project they feel as safe and as supported as they do at home. But more than that, they can be free. Free to be themselves, free to take risks, free to be independent, free to choose.

“First place where I’ve felt safe and I feel at home”

– Project-er

It’s within this environment that we see our guys thrive – we see confidence grow and there is nothing more rewarding than to see everyone support each other. We are a team – we encourage a sense of belonging and we unite as one tribe.

Building strong and trusted relationships is everything to us – not just with the people who come along to The Butterfly Project but fundamentally with parents and carers as well.

We understand that sometimes families have had to fight every step of the way for the right support. As a staff team we are there to support parents and carers too – the handover of information, the empathy from the staff – we know how important it is to feel seen and heard. We will do what needs to be done.

So welcome aboard! Our whole staff team combines to create something truly magical at the Butterfly Project. Enjoy our stories and photos and
