Our centre operates daily and offers a wide range of structured activities.

Some activities are focused on building practical skills for the workplace and independence. It’s why we’re located on an industrial park.

We have a spacious woodwork room and we also have our own gardens and greenhouse where we grow fruit and vegetables and we have a large kitchen area to enable people to have a go at baking and cooking.

There is also a sensory element to the hub offering lots of activities through music and sensory exploring.

Our employment team also supports our day service users to reach their employment goals and provide support by creating CVs, cover letters and by finding work placed experience with employers.
