Our Story

Auntie Vals Ability Centre was founded in August 2007 from Auntie Vals home kitchen.

Val used to make home made preserves to sell at the WI Market in Billingshurst. When the market closed the preserves were still in demand from local shops and individual customers during 2007.

During her lifetime Auntie Val worked as a professional Carer looking after young people and supporting families in their own homes. During this time she recognised a need for young people leaving the system with little if any prospects for the future.

So in 2007 Auntie Val’s began.


Auntie Val’s Ability Centre only employs people with disabilities and is proud that has been awarded the disability confident employer symbol.

Auntie Val’s Ability Centre works with professional partners ie. Job Centres, County Council, British Legion, Treloar School and College and others to provide work experience and training to as many people with difficulties as possible and giving opportunities to improve their lives.

Auntie Val’s Ability Centre is providing a lasting commitment to providing these objectives for future generations.
