The Emily Jordan Foundation
The Emily Jordan Foundation was formed as a lasting legacy to 21 year old Emily Jordan who drowned whilst river boarding in New Zealand.
This amazing charitable organisation aims to help individuals with moderate learning and physical disabilities to lead valued and fulfilled lives - a subject very close to Emily's heart as her brother and his friends have learning difficulties.

The Emily Jordan Foundation was established to help individuals with moderate learning and physical disabilities.
The first aim of the charity was to raise enough funding to purchase an industrial unit in Kidderminster - this has successfully been achieved.
More recently, the charity has completed the relocation of Spokes CIC to the unit.Spokes CIC is a social enterprise whose aim is to train young people with learning difficulties to enter the workplace.
Training involves cleaning, assembling and servicing out of date bikes that are then put back for sale to the general public.All work is carried out to CYTECH standards and the bikes are very affordable.
Spokes now runs local bike clubs and repairs bikes for local schools in Kidderminster.
Finally, a new computer training area for the individuals to learn computer skills has been completed. A joint project with Kidderminster College, the area is used for teaching web browsing, basic word processing and spreadsheet applications to the individuals who come to the Foundation building.
Plans for the Future
The Emily Jordan Foundation now needs your help to raise enough funds to create a new Community Interest Company (CIC) that would be involved in the training of basic woodworking skills.
