At our centres all over the UK, we offer a huge range of daytime activities for adults with complex disabilities.
Our day services offer the chance to learn, grow in confidence and try all sorts of interesting and fun things.
You might want to learn a new life skill, like cooking or using public transport. Or you might try your hand at pottery, or take a trip in one of our wheelchair-accessible vehicles to a local theatre.
Whatever you want to try, it’s always your choice. We tailor our support to you.
