Referral Process

We endeavour to offer placements to people with physical and/or learning disabilities, who we feel can benefit from our help, support and services.

Families and Clients

This section gives you direct access to some of the key areas that we think might be of most use but do pick up the phone anytime.

Our Services

At our Dorincourt centre we provide care, therapy, life coaching, skills training and tailored day services to facilitate independent living for disabled people.

Accommodation Types

We have various accommodation styles for clients to try, but they are all based on the one site at Dorincourt.

Day Services

For clients who do not wish to live on site but are within commuting distance of Dorincourt, we are happy to provide a day service.


Whether you volunteer as an individual or as an organisation or corporate team, there are so many ways in which you can help.

“When I arrived at QEF I had absolutely no notion of how to look after myself. Recently, I moved into my own bungalow.”
