Chailey Heritage Foundation provides education and care services and is one of the UK's leading centres for children and young people with physical disabilities and complex health needs.

The Charity delivers services in five main areas:

Chailey Heritage School: a non-maintained special school for 3-19 year olds.

Chailey Heritage Residential: a 'home from home' offering a range of boarding options from short breaks through to 52-week care, for pupils from our school.

Chailey Heritage Futures: a residential transition service for young people from 16 years, acting as a stepping stone into adult life, and beyond.

Community Services: a vibrant day service in our Hub and pay-as-you-go sessions in our Leisure & Skills Centre, as well as out-of-school options for pupils.

Chailey Heritage Pathways: a community-based service offering the expertise of our staff to children and young adults in their own home and out in the community.

We create possibilities for children and young people with complex disabilities using highly-trained staff who are specialists in their field, and by providing the latest technology.


We provide a school for pupils, aged 3-19, and flexible residential services to support them and their families.  Residential services are also available for young adults (19-25 years) in our transition service. The day provision provided in the Hub and Leisure & Skills Centre are available for people with disabilities from the community to come to meet others, increase their confidence and skills for life, while having fun.  We also offer our skilled staff to families living in the community via a domiciliary service.
