Having over 14 years of experience within the  learning disabilities environment I am passionate about developing a service to meet the needs of young people.  I believe that people with learning disabilities should be given the same opportunities as anyone else and play an active role within the community.  evolve has been set up to provide progressive,  contemporary and modern support with the aim of achieving these goals.

I have worked for over 10 years within learning disabilities including a role within a transition college, allowing me to gain a wide variety of experience and gain an insight into the need for a service such as evolve. We have developed  this initiative to provide a dynamic and forward thinking environment in which young people can thrive. I feel my passion and drive to modernise support, and the contacts I have forged can contribute towards the delivery of this innovative service.

evolve has been developed by The DOVE Project, a leading and innovative organisation that offer a wide range of personalised and outcome based care and support packages. 

Part of Selborne Care Limited, The DOVE Project operate throughout Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall.

Dynamic and innovative transition support for young adults with learning disabilities

Your Life.
No Limits.

Evolve’s primary aim is to provide people with the skills, confidence and experiences needed to move forward positively and become a more rounded individual.  Using a person centred approach we will identify an individual’s strengths and aspirations and provide the support needed to achieve personal goals, gain self-worth, improve confidence and fulfill potential.

We work closely with schools and colleges to help facilitate a smooth transition out of education and build positive relationships with young people, parents and other professionals. 

Our contemporary approach ensures that we provide an age appropriate, exciting and relevant programme, designed to broaden horizons and enable positive progression. People are empowered to participate fully in support design and delivery, with activities and experiences evolving to meet demand.
