Red2Green is a registered charity, working to increase opportunities in learning, leisure and work for people with a wide range of disabilities in Cambridgeshire. We were set up in November 1997 and our legal name is Turning the Red Lights Green, abbreviated to Red2Green.
To achieve our aims we run a number of services, enabling people with learning disabilities, Asperger's Syndrome and mental health problems to learn new skills, enjoy a wide range of leisure activities, make new friends, gain confidence and prepare themselves for employment.
Several services are suitable for people with personal budgets and we welcome enquiries.
We raise awareness of the potential of people with disabilities to make a positive and valuable contribution to society. We are happy to give talks about the work of Red2Green to clubs and groups including professional teams.
Through our individually tailored activity programmes, Red2Green strives to:
- encourage independence and self-worth
- ensure services reflect client choice
- value difference
- promote enjoyable development
Red2Green works to raise awareness more widely in the general public of the potential of people with disabilities to make a positive and valuable contribution to society. We believe people with disabilities should:
- have equal opportunities to participate in work, learning and leisure activities
- be able to access services and opportunities within the community, as part of the community
- confidently fulfil their lives free from prejudice
- be recognised as having the same human and civil rights as everyone else.
