Welcome to our website!

Natural Ability works with and for people of all ages with learning disabilities offering bespoke education for young people with complex needs, rural supported living, training and work experience in agriculture, land-based work and animal care and horticulture.

About us

Natural Ability was established in 2009 to promote the health and wellbeing of people with learning and other disabilities and help them gain independence and greater self-esteem. We do this through the provision of high quality services, inclusion into the life of the community and building on people's strengths and aspirations. 

Where we work

Natural Ability is based in the west of Northumberland in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We work throughout Northumberland, and into Co Durham, Cumbria and Newcastle

We work with...

Children, young people and adults (from age 6 upwards) with a range of learning disabilities and other disabilities, some of whom may also have Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or complex needs. Some may exhibit behaviour which others may find challenging.    

Have a look at some recent research about the benefits of Personal Health Budgets for adults with learning disabilities on our "Services for adults" page   

We are registered with the Care Quality Commission. Click here to see our latest inspection report.

We can also offer Day Farming opportunities to people with Dementia and those recovering from long-term mental ill-health.
