Welcome to the Beneficial Foundation!

The Beneficial Foundation is a Portsmouth based Registered Charity, established in 1979 to provide education, training and rehabilitation to adults of all ages who are in need. It seeks to assist the disadvantaged, particularly those with learning difficulties and other disabilities.

The Foundation encourages the personal and social development of Trainees, giving them every opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications through City & Guilds.

Courses are available both at the Portsmouth Training Centre and at satellite locations around Portsmouth and outlying areas. The Foundation's aim is to enable Trainees to progress into paid employment, improving both their quality of life and the positive contribution that they are able to make to the community.

The Foundation has established a number of Social Firms, where Trainees and other disadvantaged local people can further develop their skills, work ethic, confidence and self-worth and thus progress towards paid employment. We continue to look for and develop more social enterprises and meaningful activities.


For the month of January most remaining stock has up to 50% off until the end of January.
