1954 to 2024
Nansa was established in 1954 by a group of families for the purposes of providing meaningful and enriching activities and support to their adult children with cerebral palsy.
In the years since, Nansa has grown to provide a far wider range of specialist provision, for people of all ages living with, or caring for others with, special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). In addition, Nansa also facilitates a range of projects that promote inclusion, advocacy, participation, accessibility, and awareness of/for not only those with SEND, but a wider community of neurologically diverse individuals, who may feel excluded, marginalised, or unsupported because of social, behavioural, and/or developmental differences.
Join us throughout 2024 as we celebrate 70 years of Nansa.
There will be competitions, activities, and lots of fun as we help you, help us, celebrate our platinum year.
Our 70th Anniversary Gala Dinner, will take place on 2nd November 2024 at Sprowston Manor Hotel. We are so grateful to the local businesses and community groups who have chosen to support this event by sponsoring a table. More information about the event is coming soon and we anticipate that tickets will go on general sale in the spring.
Although we have secured the 30 sponsors we needed for the Gala Dinner, we do anticipate their will be plenty of other corporate sponsorship opportunities throughout 2024 (our 70th year). Please get in touch with us via the details below if your business would like to support Nansa.
Much of our work is supported through commissioning and personal budgets received from Norfolk County Council, together with grants from the National Lottery Community Fund, and other charitable trusts and foundations. But in order for Nansa to thrive, we always rely on further support from our community. To help us secure the future of Nansa, we are looking for local businesses and other organisations to choose us as their charity of the year.
