Chrysalis is a local organisation that works with passion and integrity supporting adults with disabilities (with a special focus on learning disabilities) to live active, exciting and independent lives.
Our mission is ‘to provide dynamic opportunities to enrich the lives of adults with learning disabilities in a friendly and supportive environment. This is achieved from a basis of mutual respect, understanding of each person’s needs and a commitment to encourage individual’s to reach their full potential.’
Established as a charity in 1996. Chrysalis currently supports over 60 individuals to access a wide range of both leisure and educational activities through one to one support, group activities and holidays. We also offer an outreach provision which enables the individual’s we support to access community facilities throughout the day as well as on an evening or weekend.
Chrysalis Wholefoods Shop, a social enterprise located in Wigton town centre, provides a platform for the individuals we support to gain recognised qualifications as well as gaining valuable work experience.
