News & Updates


Our first cohort of Autism Champions are now out delivering training themselves!

Robin joined up with Spike to deliver his first one day course and they had amazing feedback!

Read it here 


We have been in contact with Arif who is the CEO of YPSA in Bangladesh.  Beyond Limits  donated £3434 earlier this year and Arif and Judith were working to ensure every penny reached children who need it. Arif is in the camps in Rohingya Bangladesh that have so far absorbed close on 1m refugees out of Myanmar. 

Judith asked Arif what she could do. Arif said “find more organisations willing to donate”. Want to do something that means something rather than just sitting at your desk? Help us persuade someone, anyone, one organisation to share the up and coming Christmas “excess” with people who have nothing to eat, drink or use for a toilet.

If you can help please get in touch. Judith is on hand and ready to help you twist anyone’s arm that needs twisting. Meanwhile watch this before you book your table at your Christmas party.


On 6/11/17 we spent time in Harrogate with Board of Trustees for Ripon Community Link (RCL). Spending time with Boards is always a challenge. They hold responsibility for the working lives and lived experience of people. Most inspiring about RCL was the courage with which the Board and CEO grasped the development nettle turning development needs straight in to potential. We are delighted to be returning for round two in January. Thanks for the invite brave people.

Doreen Kelly,
Director, Beyond Limits

“Judith has done consultancy work with me and my organisations for many years now previously at Partners for Inclusion and presently at Beyond Limits. Judith has predominantly worked with people we support who have Autism and their families. The work she has done for us has been second to none, her knowledge of Autism and her ability to teach and support others is immense. I am delighted now that I am working in the South West of England as I can enlist Judith’s support much more”.

Beyond Limits Autism Champion

“I have found this course inspiring, interesting and challenging. The course delivery was very engaging and Judith has an excellent way of encouraging the attendees confidence and challenging preconceptions. Many thanks.”

Kaleidoscope Autism Champion

“Judith has a remarkable insight into the sometimes ferociously complex issues which arise for the people we support and the ability to dig deep and encourage us to explore and look for ways we can find solutions.”

Andrew Horner,
Hft Regional Manager

“Orenda’s input into the development of a new and innovative Autism service in Bradford has been invaluable. We have been supported to build upon our reputation as a creative and innovative provider of support and challenged to ensure we develop best practice approaches which are recognised locally, nationally and internationally.
From day one, the project plan was clear and the outcomes were delivered - the impact of which has been clearly evidenced for commissioners, care managers  families and most importantly for the people we support.”

About Us

Delivery of fantastic services is our passion. Determination to use our skills and talents in the most effective way possible is what unites us. The belief that all people have strengths, tapped and untapped, binds us together and the conviction that most people in social care think the same is the inspiration that gets us up and going every day.
