About Norwood

Norwood transforms the lives of over 4,000 vulnerable children and their families, adults with learning disabilities and autism, and children with special educational needs.

We provide the highest-quality care, tailored to individual needs, to thousands of people across London and the South‑East to help them lead the most active, inclusive lives they can.

Founded in 1795, and the only Jewish charity to enjoy the Patronage of Her Majesty The Queen, Norwood is proud of its rich history of helping the community’s most vulnerable people.

To this day we stay true to our original mission, to help people change their lives for the better.
