The new head of service at the halow project, James Davies.

He has 15 years’ experience working with children and adults with a learning disability, most recently as operations director and interim chief executive of Generate Opportunities, that provides services for people with learning disabilities in Wandsworth.

He said: “halow offers a first class service and provides something quite unique for young adults with a learning disability throughout Surrey and the surrounding areas.

“I am passionate about promoting the independence of people with a learning disability and I am very impressed with the charity’s range of services and its strategy. I am looking forward to working with everyone – young people, families, staff, trustees and volunteers – to continue to build and develop the great services.”

halow charity aims to put young people in the driving seat and help them take control of their own lives by providing opportunities and support to:

  • make and meet friends through social activities
  • build confidence and life skills
  • access meaningful work and homes of their own
