Welcome to Wilberforce Trust!

We offer supported housing, supported living, sensory impairment assessments, sight registrations, rehabilitation support and much more.

We are also the home of Club Wilber, the fantastic club for the families of children with visual impairments!

If you’d like to support us in the wonderful work we do then take a look at our events, consider becoming a volunteer or have a look to see if there are any job openings that would suit.

It’s always great to have someone new join the Wilberforce family!



Join Us – Care & Support Worker

If you are looking for a rewarding and challenging role where you can make a real difference to the lives of individuals with visual impairments and other complex disabilities then this role will suit you. The work is person-centered and we aim to help each individual to live as independently and fully as possible.

Our Care/Support workers provide daily support and personal care, and once fully trained will administer medication to clients.  Duties may also include arranging daily activities, taking clients out on trips and activities, helping a client to prepare their meals or attending sensory sessions at Wilberforce House.  We also encourage clients to develop and maintain positive relationships with family and friends.
