Founders Day 2017

This week (Tuesday 26 September) CASE celebrated 32 years since its launch in 1985. CASE has supported over 600 local people from across Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire to lead a better life and will continue to help more people as it grows.

CASE was founded in 1985 by a group of parents and carers of those with a learning disability to provide a safe learning space where the individual can gain a variety of skills from IT to horticulture with the aim of improving their quality of life and giving the trainees opportunities they may otherwise not have had.

CASE currently has over 130 trainees and still has places available for people living in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.

A special lunchtime event was a great success with our current trainees and we were joined by some of our retired staff, supporters and local business people  – showing just how far CASE have come as a charity and community over the decades!

Also in attendance was founder members Andrew and Mary Peach, who unveiled Alison’s Bench, a lasting legacy for their sadly departed daughter who was one of the very first trainees at CASE.

Whilst the event was in full swing, we also received a visit from Hull City’s Dean Windass and their mascot Roary for guests and trainees to have their photo taken with.
