United Response call to celebrate 50th anniversary

For 50 years, United Response has been a leading provider of social care to those who need it. Their story starts in 1973 when two determined sisters, Corinne and Dorothy Hine, founded United Response, to provide better care for adults with learning disabilities.

Today, United Response continues to provide person-centred support for adults and young people with learning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities, mental health needs and challenging behaviours.

To celebrate their 50th anniversary, they are launching a programme of activities and events to recognise the incredible achievements of the people they support and their dedicated team of care professionals.

The UR 50th Ambassadors programme will be at the core of the decision-making process and creative development of this exciting work. The UR 50th Ambassadors will be recruited, trained, and paid to interview their peers, families of those we support, and staff. They will also learn how to curate exhibitions, using the interviews and content donated to the archive so they can share their history and heritage to the wider community and the general public.

They are also collecting and archiving important documents, photographs, videos and anything which can help them tell the story of those they support and life at United Response over the last fifty years.

United Response are proud of their history and the people who have contributed to our success over the last 50 years. They look forward to celebrating their anniversary with everyone who has been part of our journey so far.
