Who we are

Opening Doors is a user led organisation for people with learning disabilities which specialises in recognising people as individuals.

Our mission is for all adults with learning disabilities in Norfolk to be confident individuals, controlling their own lives and making their own decisions, with support from people they can trust.

Our aims and objectives are to:  

  • support people to speak up on issues that affect them
  • make positive change happen for people with learning disabilities 
  • increase people's self confidence
  • support people to become active citizens
  • use people's talents, gifts and skills to teach others
  • develop people's work, office and social skills
  • improve the health and well being of people with learning disabilities provide opportunities to try out new things and have new experiences
  • provide links into the community
  • support people to communicate with professionals and bring about necessary changes which improve and enhance their lives.

We have offices in Norwich and Cromer where our members work and learn new skills. 

We have group activities in Cromer, Norwich, Great Yarmouth and Diss.

How we are run

Opening Doors is run by people with learning disabilities.
We also have a Board of Trustees who provide overall governance of the organisation. This is made up of people with and without learning disabilities. 

There is a Management Committee that is responsible for running the organisation on a day-to-day basis. This is made up entirely of people who have learning disabilities with good support. This makes us a user-led organisation.
