The Dame Hannah Rogers Charity was founded in 1767 and although our proud history has been varied, the aim has been simple: to help enrich and empower the lives of children and adults in need.
In 1925 and after much modernisation, Hannahs opened one of the UK’s first orthopaedic hospitals at Ivybridge, on the edge of Dartmoor National Park. Some 30 years later, we were the first to open a school for children with Cerebral Palsy. Since then, we’ve gone from strength to strength, enabling and enriching the lives of more than 500 disabled children and their families annually. In 2008, we saw a desperate need for young adults with disabilities. As a result we opened Hannahwood; a transition programme for 19-25yr olds. Hannahwood supports our students choice to live independently in specially adapted, bright and modern bungalows.
