Welcome to ECHO
A very warm welcome to our new website. We are so proud of the work we do and hope you will enjoy the new design which should make it easier to find what you are looking for.
What is ECHO?
ECHO aims to make a real difference to the lives of disabled people across Herefordshire. We have been doing this for over 25 years. Being a small independent charity, we are able to respond to the individual needs of our 230 members. Our participants are closely involved in the running and governance of the organisation. This helps us develop projects they really want and need.
None of this could happen without the volunteers that work in every part of ECHO- over 90 of them give their time and expertise. We gratefully acknowledge that we could not offer the range of services we do without their help. An extra pair of hands is always welcome, we have some fantastic opportunities so give us a call is 2017 is your year to make a difference. Have a look on our volunteer page for more details.

Happy 60th Birthday Stephen
This month we say a very special Happy Birthday to Stephen who turned 60. He has celebrated many birthdays with ECHO since his early days at the Pembridge Arts project. The cake was made by staff member, Lucy, who gave up her day off to create this chocolate masterpiece so that his friends at Friday Club could share the celebration. Stephen is also a valued member of Clever Betsy who took him out for a pub lunch. 'I loved my cake' said Stephen ' it was fun to share it with my ECHO friends'
