Who We Are
The Glenmore Trust is a not for profit organisation working with adults and older children with a learning disability in North Cumbria. The Glenmore Trust aims to provide residential and domiciliary support which enables people with a learning disability to live as independently as possible in the community. The Trust was formed in 1988 as a partnership between Social Services, East Cumbria Health Authority, Impact Housing Association and the Mencap Societies from Carlisle and Penrith. The Trust is a registered Industrial and Provident Society, established exclusively for charitable purposes, and has a Management Committee who has overall responsibility for the management of the Trust.
What We Do
The Trust aims to offer people an ordinary life in an ordinary home. People who use our services are encouraged to make their own choices, deciding for themselves the kind of people they want to be and the direction they want their lives to take.
Our philosophy is that every person has the right to:
• Self-determination, to understand and be heard in the planning of their life.
Our objective is that the people who use our services feel they are delivered according to the aims and philosophy stated above and that we work towards the following outcomes being true for all those using our services:
• I make everyday choices.
"Our Quality of Life is determind by the presence of things which are of important to us"
