Caring About Making That Difference

The Norman laud association


We have 2 homes, both based in Wylde Green, Sutton Coldfield which provide overnight and day care services. Our aspiration is for our service users to enhance their social experiences, develop and maintain skills for independence, support individual interest and build resilience so they are equipped for every change in their lives.

We provide a service for adults and young people funded by their local authority from Birmingham, Sandwell, Walsall, Staffordshire and Solihull and also those with direct payments. 

We need to raise £250,000 per annum to support our services, provide holidays, day trips, family support services and to purchase much needed specialist equipment. We hold a variety of events throughout the year, rely heavily on Trust fundraising and enjoy working with our local community to ensure the momentum of fundraising continues.  For further information and to get involved click on our Fundraising page.

Lime Grove House
Children's Short Break Home

The Norman Laud Short Break Home provides both overnight and day care services for children aged from 5 – 18, who have profound learning difficulties, autism, complex physical and/or health care needs. 
Although named Lime Grove House the young people continue to call us “Norman Laud” following our move to the new premises in 2016. 
Our 4 bedded home has a really homely ambience and an environment that is stimulating, nurturing and equipped to meet the diverse needs of the young people. We provide positive social experiences for our young people whilst they are away from their families.

I like coming to Norman Laud because I
like to use the iPad and enjoy spending time with people.
I like all of the staff because they help me out a lot. My favourite activity is looking at the clock on the iPad and listening to music on the new projector computer. I also like colouring and painting. I love it when staff take me out to the fish and chip shop.

I first started staying at Norman Laud when I was a teenager and then moved to Emscote House when I turned 18. I am now 30 years old.
When I stay at Emscote House I enjoy going shopping with my friends and with staff. I like helping doing jobs around the home. In the summer I enjoy going into the summer house to listen to music and relax with a cold drink. While I am having fun at Emscote House my mum gets to have a good rest.
