Welcome to Dame Hannahs
Our mission is simple, to empower, advocate and enrich the lives of adults with disabilities.
Working at its main site at Ivybridge, about 11 miles from Plymouth – Dame Hannahs provides learning, care, support and fun for adults with a range of disabilities, including: Hannahwood – an innovative transition project for young adults - therapies and supported activities. Our holistic approach offers professional support from our therapists, educationalists, expert medical staff and a care team.
#STOPthePressureTo raise awareness of #STOPthePressure day, Dame Hannah’s wrote a poem called "Under Pressure" and created this amazing video, which was submitted to the community Tissue Viability Team’s, Pressure Damage Prevention poem competition.
I am pleased to say that we won! Congratulation and a big thank you to all those involved.
