Pathways Support

Pathways Support is a care and support provider for adults with learning difficulties and disabilities based in the heart of Portsmouth.

With the current cost of living crisis, more and more people are going unnoticed by the system and many are living hungry and cold.

We at Pathways believe everyone should have access to the help they need and deserve, although we are already aware of some of the fantastic food bank organisations in Portsmouth, none specifically target adults with learning difficulties or disabilities.

As we know disabled people are at a disadvantage due to low employment opportunities and the extra costs some face. Harrowingly, almost half of people living in poverty either have a disability/LD or are an acting carer for someone with one.

In addition to this almost 70% of adults with learning difficulties say they have no resources for food banks and would not know where to go to for one.

Pathways, with the help of the community, would like to change this.

Rainbow Centre (The Rainbow Centre for Conductive Education)

The Rainbow Centre provides help and support to children with Cerebral Palsy.

The Rainbow Centre was created by a small group of parents looking to provide the best help and support they could for their children with Cerebral Palsy. That search led to finding Conductive Education, a system of learning based on the simple concept of human potential that everyone has the capability to learn and develop, irrespective of their starting point. This is the Rainbow Centre’s DNA and over 30 years, the secret of our neuro rehabilitation success.

Royal Voluntary Service - Portsmouth QA Home From Hospital

Our goal is to inspire and enable people to give the gift of voluntary service to meet the needs of the day in their communities. We believe that our volunteers’ service makes them, and Britain, healthier and happier.

We also work closely with the NHS, providing valuable support services that allow hardworking hospital staff time to focus on looking after the people in their care.

Working one-to-one, in groups and online, our network of trained volunteers provide the time and skills that help people feel stronger, healthier and more able to cope with any challenges they may be facing.

Through social activities and groups, they create connections and friendships that help communities thrive and boost the wellbeing of the people involved.

Our services vary from area to area and in some cases are available via your local authority or health services.
