Activities

All our activities are Person Centred and the support we provide is outcome focused with clear aims and objectives. These are measurable and assessed at the end of each term.

The Centre works to a three term year with each Service User having the choice of change to a different group each term. This gives them the flexibility to be able to experience different activities, learn new skills, become more independent and follow new interests.
