For nearly 30 years Langdon has been helping young people and adults with learning disabilities and autism.

Our vision is Livingness

Livingness is the absolute essence of what we provide for our Members and their families. Livingness at Langdon is achieved by empowering our Members to live their very best lives independently, to have the same opportunities as the rest of society, to be their best, true selves, and to be active and engaged in the local community.

Our mission

Our mission is to create a community in which Jewish young people and adults with learning disabilities or with autistic spectrum disorders thrive and have equal opportunities to live the lives they choose.

We are guided by the following goals:

  • To provide environments, physical, social and spiritual, that are fit for purpose, warm and welcoming; create accessible educational and employment opportunities in which our Members can flourish; and nurture enterprise and innovation to empower our Members to achieve their ambitions and to focus on their abilities.
  • To encourage and support our Members to have a fulfilled social life and participate and be active within the wider community.
  • To enable the families of our Members to live their lives knowing that their children have a future full of potential with Langdon by their side every step of the way.
  • To facilitate collaborative partnerships between Members, their families, and other stakeholders so that people with learning disabilities or with autistic spectrum disorders can lead independent and fulfilled lives.

Our values


We do not accept the acceptable and constantly strive to be the best in everything we do by going the extra mile, paying attention to the small things and giving 100% effort and commitment every day.


We positively challenge when we are right and when we are not right and are adaptable in a changing world so that we continue to grow and deliver our mission.


We are honest, open and fair in everything we do and deliver on our promises. (Trusted advisor)


We treat others how we would like to be treated with respect and kindness. (Put others first)


We encourage our people to believe in their own ability and potential, that’s Livingness.
