Positive Path Foundation Friendship and Socialising
for adults with learning and physical challenges
Positive Path Foundation Run by people who appreciate the importance of friendships Positive Path Foundation We are finding friends for adults with learning and physical challenges across the south coast
Positive Path Foundation is a charity set up to support the development of friendship for adults with both learning difficulties and physical challenges from age 16yrs old and over. The areas covered currently are Hampshire and Dorset, with a view to expand in the future.

SO PROUD TO ANNOUNCE WE ARE NOW WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BOURNEMOUTH CHRISTCHURCH & POOLE COUNCIL (BCP) OFFERING MENTORING & THERAPY TO VULNERABLE CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULTS!

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 22-year-old 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.
