Dame Hannah Rogers Trust, or Hannahs as it is known, is a pioneering charity that has worked with, and championed, disadvantaged and vulnerable children, young people and adults with a range of disabilities for more than 230 years. Its mission is to empower, advocate and enrich the lives of children and adults with disabilities.

Hannahs at Seale-Hayne (former internationally renowned agricultural college) was opened in 2010 as an innovative and ground-breaking solution to the complete lack of appropriate facilities for people with disabilities once they reach adulthood. It is a fully accessible community space set within a beautiful Grade II listed building, in 90 acres of land near Newton Abbot in Devon.  With a wide range of facilities and full calendar of events throughout the year it is a place where everyone, regardless of their ability, can take part in new experiences and opportunities. In 2013 Hannahs welcomed over 100,000 visitors to Seale-Hayne and every year it supports over a 1000 people with disabilities, their families and carers who live in the South West of England.
