The Elfrida Society works with people with learning difficulties in Islington and traces it’s work locally back to 1919. The Elfrida Society aims to make it possible for people with learning difficulties to manage as much of their lives as they want and feel able to do. We provide a range of services including Advocacy, Access to Health, Further Education Classes, Arts Groups, Outreach Support and support for Parents with learning difficulties. We challenge people to focus on strengths, skills and aspirations, and not just on the things that people cannot do, or need support with.
