What we do

Opening Doors Yarrow and is funded by City Bridge Trust, which provides grants towards charitable activity benefitting Greater London

Opening Doors is about supporting people with learning disabilities to take a full and active part in their community, increase their confidence, widen their social network and improve their health and wellbeing

Our network of volunteers and partner organisations enables us to deliver almost 400 activities for people with learning disabilities every year

Sadly our doors are temporarily closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.ย In the meantime drop us a note and weโ€™ll get in touch as soon as we can. We look forward to when we can get back to doing what we do best: opening doors.
