Objectives

The Avalon Group is an award-winning charity providing flexible person-centred care, support and companionship for everyday life, housing, learning and employment.

We provide support to a wide range of individuals across the North of England. Our customers include older adults, people with dementia, physical, sensory or learning disabilities, mental health difficulties, acquired brain injuries, young people in transition and adults on the autistic spectrum.

We’re registered with local authorities and we’re rated highly by the CQC. That means we get inspected regularly to make sure we’re doing a good job. When you’re a customer with Avalon, you’re the most important person to us, so make sure you let us know how we’re doing.

We are registered with local authorities and rated highly by the Care Quality Commission independent inspectors.

The Avalon Group is a registered independent charity. It was registered on 7 October 1994 and granted charitable status on 26 July 1995.

To help us make sure we’re always doing our best, we’re always guided by our vision, mission and values.

Our values: 

  • We are kind and respectful to everyone,
  • We are honest and trustworthy,
  • We are always learning and developing,
  • We are inclusive; everyone has a voice,

Avalink:

Avalink is our strategic customer committee – an incredibly important group of our customers from each of our localities who act as the eyes, ears and voices of all of the customers we support. There’s at least one representative from each of our localities, and their job is to consult with their local customers, and make sure everything Avalon does is with our customers in mind.
