Announcement by the Trustees of Batias


The Trustees of Batias have made the sad and difficult decision to close due to a lack of finances and insufficient secured funding for the next financial year.  The organisation will be closing on 31st March 2024 unless additional funds can be secured before that date.


Obviously this is not a situation we were hoping to be in as an organisation with over 30 years experience and expertise in providing advocacy support to people with learning disabilities, unfortunately the current financial situation has forced this decision.


We would like to take this opportunity to say a sincere thank you to everyone who has supported Batias and the work we have done over the last 31 years.  We have seen many changes over that time and have been able to make a real difference in the lives of over 10,000 people during that time. We were recognised for our high quality, person-centred services when we received the Queens Award for Voluntary Services in 2021, and held the Quality Performance Mark for Advocacy Services.


We would especially like to thank all of the staff and volunteers, past and present who have worked passionately to ensure our clients voices are heard, and they were given the opportunities they deserved to live their best lives.
