Thumbs Up runs day programmes five days a week for twenty three young adults with significant intellectual disabilities (many of whom also have physical disabilities). We are based in Petone in Lower Hutt, and we support each individual to build networks in their community, grow in their life experiences, and develop new skills and interests.

The Trust was established in 2008 by families who wanted their disabled children to have a happy productive life after leaving school. It has developed to provide a high quality service (independent review available on our website) and the very positive feedback in annual client/family surveys testifies to the positive difference we make in the lives of our participants.
