Geographical remit: 


Yellow Submarine is an award-winning Oxfordshire charity that believes people with learning disabilities and autism deserve to live life to the full.

We tackle the problem that many people with learning disabilities leave school with limited life skills and as a result poor life chances. This often leads to isolation and being marginalised. Our projects start working with young people in community settings from the age of 11 onwards, to build their social skills, confidence, independence and ultimately their employability. At the same time we are supporting families and carers with respite.

We’re unusual in the world of charities (and local authorities) in that with the same team of staff we assist young people on their journey through childhood into adulthood. This allows us, often over many years, to gain both trust and a real insight as to how best to create a person-centered plan to support each individual.


For young people (aged 11-18) living in Oxfordshire we run an extensive programme in the school holidays, as well as a breakfast club, youth clubs and residential holidays.

For adults (18+) we run residential holidays, work experience programmes & training and a weekly social club.

We run two fantastic social enterprise cafes and hubs, one in central Oxford and one in Witney.
