The Anthony Toby Homes Trust was founded in 1974 by a group of people working in the learning disability field, together with family members. They all strongly believed that people with learning disabilities should have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else, and their aim was to work together to make this happen.
In January 1988 the Trust opened its first home in Wokingham for a small group of people with learning disabilities, Ashwater House. The charity had worked enormously hard to make this dream a reality and had to fight prejudice and ignorance from certain quarters to achieve this. Later that year the Trust supported 8 more people to live a full active life in the community of Wokingham.
Since 1998, the Trust has extended its support to a total of 17 people in its Wokingham homes, Staverton and Ashton.
