Opportunities Without Limits - Papworth Trust

Papworth Trust’s Opportunities Without Limits service provides leisure, learning and work related activities to more than 1,000 disabled people. We support customers with physical and learning disabilities ranging from  mild to moderate to more complex needs from five locations in the East of England. In Cambridgeshire we deliver a range of activities and support sessions from Hester Adrian Centre, Hawthorn Way, Cambridge (CB1 4AX), The Free Church in Sawston (CB22 3BG)and Saxongate, Huntingdon (PE29 2RR). During the current isolation and social distancing period we are continuing to provide activities and services through our online virtual sessions.


Our Opportunities Without Limits are specifically designed for those adults with Learning disabilities, Physical Disabilities, Autism and mild mental health issues. The support can be funded privately, through direct payments or through Adult Social Services. Some of our activities are geared more towards gaining employment e.g. First Steps to Success programme and OWL Bikes.


Customer can directly refer themselves (or family/Carers), as well as referrals though Adult Social Services (subject to funding approval). Also the SEN schools and EHCP budget holders can refer customers as well as a number of other voluntary/charitable & Care support organisations.

Facilities and equipment

Each of our centres in Cambridgeshire are equipped to enable us to deliver a range of services in a safe and accessible environment. Majority of our activities are designed so most of the customers can participate and so that the customer does not need to provide additional equipment.
