Ability ... not disability ...

Teesside Ability Support Centre is a place where people with various disabilities can learn, improve their skills, actively get involved in the community and have fun into the bargain. Our dedicated team loves working here, and our core team of keyworkers provides a friendly and supportive culture. Come and see us, or get involved by sponsorship, donating, or working with us.

Our objectives

One of our primary objectives is to provide training and development for independence and employment. Our training courses focus on life skills, literacy, numeracy, computer and IT and social skills.  We have a number of initiatives, including the Sensory Room, The Candy Bar, Ink Spot and now we have our amazing hydrotherapy pool which provides amazing therapy for our existing Members and will also provide an additional external income stream.

Ladies' Night is a roaring success!

Through the amazing fundraising efforts of our staff and friends the recent Ladies' Night has raised a fabulous £1.435. Thank you for your generosity!
