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.

We are working towards a future where people with learning disabilities are included in every aspect of community life, making decisions, contributing to society and living independently.
Our Learning for Life programme aims to improve skills, raise aspirations and confidence. The courses include Laughter Club, which uses yoga techniques to improve breathing and trigger happy hormones; musical theatre and drama, encouraging self-expression and teaching presentation skills through learners’ love of music, and mosaics, which improves people’s motor skills and creativity.
Based in Edgware we run a vibrant community centre with office space and a hall available for hire.
Please donate to ensure that people with learning disabilities can continue to benefit from our work.

The League of Jewish Women is a long established charity founded in 1943. Our aims are to give service to the communities we live in, and to give hands-on help where there is a need, irrespective of ethnic grouping, gender or religion. We provide volunteer help in many diverse places such as schools, prisons, hospices and day centres. We work with other organizations such as Macmillan nurses, Witness and Victim Support and Jewish Care. We are the UK affiliate of the International Council of Jewish Women and therefore have worldwide links, and are also affiliated to other national women’s organizations.

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, after school music and art sessions, 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!
