Ability provides housing, care and support services for people who want to live more independently.

We have two operating divisions – Ability Housing and Ability Care & Support. These provide housing, care or support to more than 1,000 people with learning disabilities, mental health needs, physical or sensory impairments, in 32 districts in London and southern England.

We are ISO 9001 quality accredited, an Investors in People organisation and Best Companies accredited. We have been rated as one of the The Sunday Times 100 Best Not-for-Profit Organisations.

We are registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide personal care, and accommodation with personal care, in a variety of locations.

The CQC checks these services at least once a year to make sure they are up to standard. You can read their reports here.
