Safety and security are paramount to us here at Just B.U, to safeguard you, to make sure you feel comfortable, welcome and wanted in our ecosystem.
Once we’ve established this level of trust with you, we look to encourage independence.
Whether you are within our Atherton hub, out in the field as part of one of our many projects, or at home in your own space, we are here to encourage and strengthen your confidence.
Develop Your Independence
Here at Just BU we recognise the importance of independence for all of our members. We're here to encourage and support you in your life, and help guide you in the right direction.

Get Involved with the Community
To everyone at Just BU, Community is everything (we are a CIC after all). We always encourage our members to get involved with their local communities, and arrange day trips and activities with local organisations.
It's a great chance to get out there, meet some new people, and lend a helping hand to our friends. You can use our community pathway activities to help kick start you in the right direction.
We also encourage our customers to arrange their own activities, and help with planning the ones we organise; teaching valuable life skills along the way.
Its not all work and no play. As part of the Just B.U family we will enable you to plan and organise some awesome trips out.
We like to go bowling, playing crazy golf, visiting the cinema, theme parks, museums and organise other fun days out.
We couldn’t possibly fit everything on one page, but check out our Facebook pages to see what we’ve been up to recently.
