FitzRoy and Leo Trust join forces

30th April 2015

FitzRoy, is delighted to announce they have joined forces with The Leo Trust, a charity that provides support to people with learning disabilities in Kent.

The service at The Leo Trust has become part of FitzRoy’s group of outstanding learning disability services across the UK which comprises Day services, Supported Living, and Registered Care. The service will now be known as FitzRoy Leo Trust.

Joe Graham, Chief Executive The Leo Trust comments“I set up The Leo Trust in 1992 to create a small organisation with a strong and caring ethos that could ensure equality and opportunity for people with learning disabilities. As my retirement date drew closer we decided that merging with a larger organisation would be the best way to ensure longevity of the service for all the residents of Leo Trust. We are delighted to be merging with FitzRoy; they are a strong organisation who share our ethos and ensure people with learning disabilities have as much independence and choice as possible. I feel confident that the care and support available to the residents of Leo Trust in Boldshaves Oast, and the Croft, will continue to be the best it can possibly be.”

Anna Galliford, Chief Executive FitzRoy comments “As discussions of a possible merger between FitzRoy and Leo Trust began it became very clear that both organisations have the same over-riding commitment to excellent care for all with learning disabilities. The vision of FitzRoy’s founders; to transform lives for people with learning disabilities, informs all our work, and we are delighted that we have been given the opportunity to continue this for all the residents at Leo Trust. The continuity of care has remained uninterrupted throughout the merger and all the support staff have continued to provide consistent care to all the residents. We look forward to a happy future with them all.”
