About Norwood

Norwood is the largest Jewish charity in the UK supporting vulnerable children and their families, children with special educational needs and people with learning disabilities.

Founded in 1795, Norwood is one of the UK’s oldest charities and the only Jewish charity to enjoy the Patronage of Her Majesty The Queen.

We help children and adults to maximise their potential at home, at school and throughout their lives, through personalised services designed to enable choice.

Norwood provides services for thousands of people.

Norwood has a workforce of over 2,000, made up of 1,250 staff and hundreds of dedicated volunteers.
