One of our cross-sector groups is focused on disabled young people. It became apparent that there was a significant gap in services: post-school education for Orthodox Jewish disabled young people. There was no College provision for this group. They moved straight from school to Adult Services.
People came together from different sectors - including parents, community charities, Hackney council and Hackney Community College - to design and create a new service. The result is Kisharon College, a partnership with Hackney Community College and the council, and new excellent provision for our young disabled school-leavers.
