Welcome to Team Brandon! By running the Bath Half for us you will be supporting one of the 1,500 children or adults that we support with learning disabilities.

By signing up through us, you will receive a Brandon running vest, a personalised Fundraising Pack, a training guide and a dedicated fundraiser who will support you in the lead up to the event and will meet you (and cheer you on) on the day!

Latest figures suggest there are 1.5 million people* with learning disabilities living in the UK. Despite significant developments in the last 20 years, people with learning disabilities are still restricted by many aspects of the modern world; less than 7% of them for example have a job**.

At Brandon Trust we’re striving to change this. We inspire the people we support to set themselves free so they can reach for their dreams and be all they can be. We’re striving to build a connected society by:

  1. Ensuring people we support are connected in their community and wider society.
  2. Encouraging and equipping more people we support to live in their own homes.
  3. Ensuring that everyone with a learning disability has the right and the capacity to have their voice heard.
