ECHO is the leading provider of day services for people with a disability in Herefordshire. We are an independent charity

We strongly believe that everyone can achieve given the right support. That is why we strive to run high quality services that are productive, educational and fun.

As a membership organisation, we are driven by the needs of our participants and deliver our services in a supportive personal way. We are proud to offer 26 different projects; everything from work-based day opportunities to inclusive club nights out. Our work puts members at the very centre of our services, responding to their needs and wishes. We include them in the running of our organisation, from supported inclusive volunteering opportunities to participant trustees on the Board. 

Please take some time to look around our website and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to find out more, support us or get involved.

REP Group

All members of the REP Group at ECHO are volunteers. They meet weekly to talk about they way ECHO is run and issues that may be affecting ECHO members. They visit projects to make sure the standard is kept high for everyone who uses the services. REP group members are supported by our Participant Involvement Worker, Claire Mee but the group decide what they want to work on. They develop their own skills in speaking up and gain confidence from being involved in the work needed to run the REP group. Each member takes on a role and many have progressed to become full Trustee members of the Board at ECHO.
