Treloar Trust


Voluntary Helper - Classrooms Voluntary Helper

Treloar’s is a groundbreaking organisation providing first class education, therapy and care for young people with physical disabilities. Our students are aged between 2 and 24. Our long-term goal is to create a world where physically disabled young people learn to take control of their lives and dare to dream. We are based in Holybourne, just outside of Alton in Hampshire.

Our School and College classrooms are enjoyable, vibrant and unique environments. Students benefit from our excellent teaching and support staff; however, Voluntary Helpers provide our students with additional support and interaction with members of the community.
