The Grace Eyre Foundation offers a range of inclusive day activities to over 100 people with learning disabilities in Brighton & Hove. Funded by Awards 4 All, the DAO Reaching Out programme aims to collaborate with and support Grace Eyre Foundation's writing and arts groups to publicise their work on DAO.

DAO aims to enable individuals at the Grace Eyre Foundation to build an online profile of writing about their activities, interests and aspirations by publishing a showcase of galleries of artwork, creative writing and a blog.
