Chizuk’s aim is to help individuals – and their families – in the Orthodox Jewish Community who have mental health problems, reducing their sense of isolation, building confidence and encouraging them to take their place in Society. Chizuk also offers help and support to those experiencing life crises.
Our services include art therapy, befriending, drop-in groups, family consultations, hospital visits, organising carers, advocacy and public events.
As the only mental health organisation that specialises in providing a religiously and culturally sensitive environment for its Orthodox Jewish users, Chizuk’s role is also educational, in that it helps to combat stigma by changing the way that mental health is viewed in the Community. Chizuk is a national service.
Kisharon transforms the lives of children and adults with a wide range of learning disabilities. It is the only Jewish organization providing education, supported living and a complement of adult services which include an employment programme, social enterprise opportunities and life skills courses. All of which are offered across the community.
At Kisharon we believe equality is everyone’s right, whichever path they take. We provide a structured yet warm and caring environment that ensures every individual can meet their potential to live as independently as possible whilst integrating within the wider community. Please contact us for further information on how you can help or to make a donation.

Langdon empowers Jewish youth and adults with learning disabilities to live the independent lives they deserve. We do this by providing them with supported living, employment opportunities, education and a vibrant social life, all within a Jewish ethos.
Through Langdon’s supported living houses in London and Manchester, our members live in their own homes, with the appropriate level of support to meet individual needs. This enables them to gain independence in a safe and secure environment, living as a community within a community.
At Legadel, we believe that every child deserves to succeed, no matter his/her circumstances. Legadel provides professional support to disadvantaged children in the North West London, Edgware and surrounding Jewish communities that are failing to thrive and succeed at school, and we do this within their school environment.
We offer a pool of resources including speech and language therapy, specialist literacy teaching, specialist maths teaching, occupational therapy and one-to-one key worker support.
Our aim is that these children will be in a better position to fully integrate into school life socially, emotionally and behaviourally; and to see the children thrive as they become able to achieve their full potential!
