The Alan Shearer Foundation has three specific aims:
- To provide a number of free short breaks for profoundly disabled children and adults at the Alan Shearer Short Break Centre every year
- To continue to offer free sensory facilities and specialist leisure activities for the disabled users of the Alan Shearer Activity Centre
- To enable St Cuthberts Care to expand its disability provision across the North East
The Alan Shearer Centre comprises three distinct facilities within the same building. Their specialist Activity Centre is open daily to disabled members of the public. It also funds a considerable number of additional free respite breaks for guests using our Short Break Centre. Their new Specialist Residential home, on the same site, offers a safe and nurturing environment for disabled adults.
