About Us
 
Finchale was established as a specialist centre for disabled adults when the previous hotel was transformed in 1943 to provide support for injured ex-servicemen returning home from active service during the Second World War.

Since then we have become a leading national provider of specialist employment programmes for over 300 men and women each year. Our trainees bring a wide variety of life experiences upon which they build for the future. You can choose to reside at the College [View Residential Information], or travel daily. There is a wide range of occupational programmes [View course list], as well as specialist support by highly qualified and experienced staff to meet your personal needs.

Our success in achieving one of the highest employment progression rates in Britain is founded on our unique approach in addressing all the employment barriers experienced by an individual as part of a single customised programme that is focussed on ability and realistic employment opportunities.
