About Us:

Forward is an independent West Norfolk charity based in Kings Lynn supporting adults with learning disabilities (members of Forward).


Many members are on the autistic spectrum causing them a range of challenges including social isolation, sensory processing difficulties and problems with communication. Some members have physical disabilities or problems with their mobility and others can have seizures or challenging behaviours, often stemmed from anxiety or not being able to communicate their thoughts or feelings. Often members can have a combination of some or all of the previous disabilities.


Forwards aims to enable members to be independent and involved in their local community, to support members towards employment, consider options, make choices and to be in control of their lives. We also aim to take care of the people around us which often means giving time and support to other local community projects. We pride ourselves on listening and including members in the direction and decisions about the charity.


To support members to reach their potential we run a variety of different programmes including sensory integration, health and fitness, communication, horticulture at our community allotments, hobbies, sailing, gliding, decorating, advocacy, independent living skills and supporting members towards employment.

Our Millfleet premises is near to the King's Lynn town centre and bus station; we encourage people to travel independently whenever possible. Forward’s Ezone factory unit is dedicated to supporting members to develop work skills. Activities there include a t-shirt printing project and making jewellery, candles, cards and wood products all to a very high standard. These are then sold to buy materials to keep the project going. We have recently been successful in supporting some of our members into voluntary work. We feel we offer a unique service in west Norfolk.


To provide all the above we fundraise to purchase specialised equipment, and this is where you come in. By subscribing to the West Norfolk Wins lottery you can help us to raise funds for this equipment which really helps our members to progress towards reaching their full potential in life. So please join the lottery today and help us make a difference.


FORWARD DAY CENTRE provides a much loved and valued service for the community.


We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!


Thank you for your support and good luck!


Yours sincerely


Steve Fuller CEO
