FiND (Families for individual Need and Dignity) are an East Yorkshire based charity offering a diverse range of person-centred support to young people with severe learning disabilities and/or autism, aiming to improve their quality
of life and independence through providing learning, social and wellbeing activities.

The charity was founded in 2001 by local parents who could not find the services they and their sons and daughters required to meet their needs.

FiND operates from two sites in Cottingham and Hessle, offering a wide range of daytime activities for adults and school leavers.

Individuals using the day service are provided with meaningful experiences with the help of a key worker, with tailored activities to suit their needs, personality and interests. Their facilities include both social and sensory rooms, as well as excursions.
