Acorn Village continues to develop and grow, people’s needs change over the years and we need to cater for them.

These have only been possible thanks to the generosity of others.

Team Building Onsite at Acorn

Sports Days, fun Days, gardening, painting, event preparation have all taken place by Corporate Teams over the years and we are so grateful for it. Not only does this encourage team building and motivation for the staff it also can widen their social experiences.

One particular team told us how honoured some of the staff felt to come directly to the charity and see the difference they personally made. They had never met adults with learning disabilities before, they came feeling very apprehensive and left having made new friends.

If your team is interested in coming to Acorn Village as part of a Charity Team Building session and want to find out more on how you can help, please contact us at  supportus@acornvillages.com

As part of the AXA Cares volunteer programme we have proudly been supporting Acorn Village since 2014 and as a team we have all found the time spent volunteering to be a rewarding experience the residents and staff are always welcoming and truly appreciate the work we do, from getting ready for the annual dog show to gardening and deck painting, it always surprises us what can be achieved in a day. We look forward to continue supporting this very worthwhile charity for many years to come.
