Providing Opportunities
for People with
Learning Disabilities

Welcome to The JPK Project. You can find us in the heart of Old Town, Eastbourne, where we’re developing a fabulous new centre to provide opportunities for people with learning disabilities.

The JPK Palm Court Tea Room is now open Mondays to Fridays from 10am – 4pm and offers work experience and training placements for adults with learning disabilities in East Sussex.

It is a fabulous new community space and an important step towards our longer term plans to create a Supported Living Centre serving the Eastbourne and Wealden area.

Our Charity

The JPK Project is led by Jill Parker, MBE, Founder and Chair together with our Trustees. We also benefit from the valued patronage of Dame Jane Gow, DBE.

We have the support of several professional partners who are invaluable to the management and running of the JPK Project.

They include Andrew Devon of Salvia Fundraising, Derek Kemp of CPL Architects and John Males of Watson Associates. We also acknowledge the support of further organisations, including Camerons Chartered Surveyors and 3VA.

Of course, no charity exists without volunteers and the JPK Project receives incredible support. Many individuals have been integral to our efforts from day one and we are indebted to their service and involvement.

From sponsored cycle rides, runs and abseils, to fundraising coffee mornings and dinner dance events, our volunteers and supporters make things happen. Find out more about getting involved.
