The Cell Barnes Trust…..
….formerly called the Cell Barnes Hospital Trust, was started over 30 years ago by parents and friends of the Hertfordshire learning disability (mental handicap) hospital called Cell Barnes.

When the hospital was closed in 1998, and its Friends group disbanded, their funds and some members joined the original Cell Barnes Hospital Trust which was then reformed. The term "hospital" was dropped, and it is now geared to support not only ex-Cell Barnes residents, currently widely dispersed in community homes, but also those sharing their accommodation.
