What is the JPK Project?
It is an ambitious but extremely worthwhile project that seeks to provide training, work experience and residential accommodation for people with learning disabilities in East Sussex.
It was formed in February 2001 as they discovered the need.
In August 2003 the Project became a Registered Charity with 7 Trustees and Dame Jane Gow as Patron.
In the absence of state service provision, the JPK Project aims to provide residential accommodation in a safe environment for people with learning disabilities, enabling them to live independently and with access to meaningful daytime activities, training, work experience and friends.
The project is entering a crucial new stage as it has acquired a piece of land and seeks to raise the funds required to make their dream a reality. This benefice has close links with the project through Jill Parker, one of the founders, and especially, her mother, Mrs Sylvia Westley who has been, until her recent move, a regular member of Jevington church (and a tireless promoter of the project).
