“Fitzroy has transformed my life – they help me with my achievements, my goals, anything. They are so amazing, I can’t put it into words.”
“A good relationship between staff and the people we support is so important. Our staff work hard to ensure that people feel listened to, that their choices are respected, and they are encouraged to work towards their goals. Stephen has a great relationship with his key worker and service manager. As he says:”
“He takes me everywhere I want to go, like the gym. He helps me grow vegetables in the garden. If I want to go on holiday he helps me with my finances. I went on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to cypress. I call it the roasting country! I loved it!
I keep telling Abida she’s wonderful, she’s nice, has a nice smile. She sees everyone as much as possible.”

Fitzroy’s LOVE4LIFE dating and friendship project helps some of the most marginalized and vulnerable people in our society, who often do not receive care provision but are at risk of bullying, hate crime, mate crime, isolation, and loneliness.
They run more than 20 events a month, including discos, meals out, sporting events and performance art classes. This year, members have also benefitted from workshops on online safety, financial skills, avoiding scams and fraud, cooking and sex education. They are very grateful to funding from The National Lottery Community Fund which has enabled them to improve and expand the project with more events in different locations.
Anna Galliford – Chief Executive of FITZROY
“I thoroughly enjoy doing my job and the impact that my professional knowledge and skills can bring to transform the lives of some of the most vulnerable in the community. I get a huge personal reward when I see the smiles on the faces of people with learning disabilities when they’ve achieved something they wouldn’t have aspired to before Fitzroy got involved”
The Fitzroy team leads over 1,000 full time, part time, and bank staff to support more than 800 people, ensuring the charity remains strong and committed to its values.
