In 2014 we celebrated our 20th Anniversary
The Frances Taylor Foundation is part of the UK charity the Poor Servants of the Mother of God. As a faith based charity the underlying principles of care and respect for each individual informs all our work. We believe in people, promote a sense of belonging, respect difference and collaborate with others to deliver high quality care and support based on our intrinsic values and vision. Our Vision is that people lead life to the full - with their dignity respected, independence supported, and uniqueness valued.
In the UK, we provide social care and support services based in Greater London, Merseyside and Sussex. We work with people with learning disabilities and older people – over 320 people in all. We work with those who live in settled groups of people with whom they have shared their lives for many years. We work with young people who live in their own homes and are setting out to develop their own life in the community. We work with people who need extra support because of a physical or sensory disability, epilepsy, or dementia. We work with people through their last days.
Many organisations claim high principles in the way they provide support and care, and some put those principles into practice. Few can claim that those principles – of respect and dignity, of seeing the whole person and responding to their hopes and wishes – have been engrained in the organisation for over 140 years. Frances Taylor founded the religious order of the Poor Servants of the Mother of God in 1872, and through her foundation we continue to support people to lead full and independent lives, in modern and effective ways. Our services are open to people of any religious belief, or none.
