Our Partners & Friends

The NeurodiverCity Training Academy is a unique collaboration of 8 delivery partners led by the ADHD Foundation & Cornerstones Foundation. However, we are keen to team up with businesses and organisations seeking to create key changes on how care leavers and neurodiverse young men & women learn new skills and get into employment.

Parent & Carers

Although, not a crisis centre or crisis resource we do support those aged 16 to 25 and are living within the Liverpool City Region – or are Liverpool children who the city may have placed outside of the borough prior to being 16 for safeguarding reasons. Our main referrers are Local Authority Virtual Schools or Care Leavers Team – or a project partner.

Young People

We support those aged 16 to 25 in the Liverpool area with ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia and Tourette’s. We also support Care Leavers. We will teach you how to make and sell clothes, how to get a job and we will work with partners to help you get the right support. You will be referred to us by the Local Authority or a partner.
