History

CASE was founded in 1985 by parents and carers of young people with learning disabilities in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.  The establishment of the charity was in response to the lack of appropriate provision to meet the needs of those individuals who although having a learning disability had the capacity and desire to improve their opportunities in life.

The charity has grown and developed over the years from a few volunteers to an established charity with 130 clients, 30 staff and approximately 12 volunteers; catering to the needs of Learning Disabled Adults.

Starting with a small group of volunteers and a handful of service users operating out of small rented premises, the charity grew to meet the rising demand for learning, employment and educational support.  Originally known as the Charter House Association for Supported Employment it became CASE in 1998.  Over the years it has been able to attract funding from the local authority for supporting clients and has formed a partnership with Hull College (HCUK) to deliver accredited training and qualifications.
