Positive Path Foundation Friendship and Socialising
for adults with learning and physical challenges

Positive Path Foundation is a charity set up to support the development of friendship, social skills, independence and work opportunities for high functioning individuals with both learning difficulties and physical challenges.
We also offer therapy, mentoring, sibling support and time out to assist the entire family living with special needs.
Operating broadly between Eastleigh, Hampshire and Poole, Dorset.

SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE RECEIVED A DONATION FROM THE CHARLES BURNETT MEMORIAL FUND VIA HIWCF. THIS WILL GO TOWARDS PROVIDING A WORK COACH FOR ONE OF OUR MEMBERS. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

The Foundation organises social events that enables their members to meet new people, socialise, enjoy being out in the community and gain new friendship skills.

The Founder of Positive Path Foundation is Jane Atkinson, mother to George, a high functioning autistic young man. She struggled for years to find suitable disability social groups for her son and decided to set up the charity herself to not only benefit George but many others like him.

The Foundation also hosts workshops which help our members to gain the vital communication and life skills for our members.

Should friendships turn into something more, our staff are on hand to chaperone our members on dates, giving them a level of independence to grow their relationship while being kept in a safe environment. Emotional support is also offered to our couples.

Jane is also a therapist offering private counselling sessions to the members and their parents/guardians. Please get in touch for more information.
