Cherry Orchards is a Company limited by guarantee with Charitable status since 1975.

The Charity has been established to provide inclusive community living which can offer support and healing through a sense of social belonging and inclusion in a rich cultural life and purposeful activity. The main pillar of this is the participation with others in a social organism which recognises the uniqueness of each human being and seeks to help this to unfold and develop in an harmonious way. The community values are of respect, tolerance and acceptance of individual capacities. The path into the community is by the informed choice of the individual, and continuing participation is regularly reviewed.

The Charity has Trustees who carry the legal responsibilities.
