THE PAINTERS AND DECORATORS are a group of 10 adults with moderate to severe learning disabilities working with a team of artists.

We are also known as 19 Plus and are a part of the charity Cambridge House in Camberwell London UK. We are funded mainly by Southwark Social Services.

One month ago we began work on an ambitious project to redesign and decorate ORIENT STREET RESPITE UNIT. Orient Street caters specifically for children and adults with learning disabilities providing temporary overnight accommodation for up to 8 people at a time.

By working together and splitting each job into smaller manageable components we form an original highly imaginative team capable of producing top quality work.

This blog will be an ongoing record of our work at Orient Street.
Please feel free to comment and send messages of encouragement.

  1. I passed this on to everybody at Cambridge House - You guys are all really missed here!

    I loved the photos - I am lucky enough now to have been able to visit you all and see you in action too - I was even there when some of the action in the photos was going on (particularly the excellent hole filling job!)

    Best wishes to you all,

  2. hi 19+,
