Welcome to The Durnford Society

The Durnford Society is a voluntary organisation founded in 1980. We provide a variety of services in and around the Plymouth area for adults with a learning disability. Our services are underpinned by our stated values of; Choice, Dignity, Fulfilment, Independence, Privacy and Rights.

The Durnford Society prides itself on offering an empowering person centred approach through a range of diverse services. Each service promotes freedom of choice for individuals encompassing their wishes, needs and aspirations. This philosophy provides the opportunity for a more independent lifestyle.

Excellence of training, staff development and an atmosphere of supportive challenge lead to consistent, positive, imaginative staff teams providing an individually tailored, holistic service capable of responding to changing needs.

By continued hard work, we aim to be acknowledged as a professionally respected organisation responding dynamically through inter-agency working and feedback to ensure that the interests of individuals are safeguarded to achieve the best outcome for people supported.
