Papworth Trust - Ipswich Town Centre

Papworth Trust Centre, Ipswich, is centrally located close to the town centre. The Centre provides disabled people with the opportunity to develop their skills and experience activities in a work-based setting.

The Trust’s Staff work with individuals to identify and develop their strengths and tailor our services to them to ensure they get the most out of the activities offered. They are also encouraged to take up training and volunteering opportunities in the local community.

We are listening to as many clients as we can to understand the impact Self-Directed Support will have on their lives. We also wish to listen to carers and their families to find out which services they think their loved ones want and we are listening to commissioners to see how they would like us to work with them in this emerging marketplace.

We offer regular FREE ‘Taster Days’ so customers can experience the services we offer to see if they are right for them. If you wish to arrange a ‘Taster Session’, please contact Sharon Cook, Service Manager on 01473 211671.
