What is Certitude?

Certitude is a charity organisation which provides personalised support across London to people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health support needs, as well as their families and carers.

Community Connecting

Community connecting is a dynamic team within Certitude that supports members of the community who are socially isolated to connect with other local people around shared interests. We do this by building their confidence, using a flexible coaching approach that focuses on rediscovering and identifying people’s qualities, interests and aspiration; and in the process, help people feel more connected with their community.

Connect & Do Space

One way in which we aim to help people feel more engaged with their community is through holding free community activities at our Connect & Do Space. These activities are a great way for local residents to socially engage with others in their area, as well as discovering or practising any passions or interests they may have, without the usual deterring price factor!

All activities are free and held at Connect & Do Space:  107 Railton Road, Brixton, SE24 0LR – Anyone is welcome!!
