If you're over the age of 18 with a physical or learning disability, or have lost some or all of your sight or hearing, you may want to attend a day centre.
We run specialist day centres across the borough, along with local community and voluntary organisations. If you're unable to get out and about, they provide a good opportunity to socialise.
Their activities include:
- dance and fitness
- arts and crafts
- trips and days out
- lunch and refreshments
Care and support is also available to make sure that you can join in if you want to.
Social care assessment
We can advise you on which day centres best meet your needs. We'll need to do a social care assessment with you first. Following this assessment, we'll discuss with you the support that's available and agree the best way forward.
There is a charge for attending a day centre. How much of that you pay will depend on the type of centre placement and how much care you need.
We can support you in several ways:
- you can buy your support using a budget that we give to you
- we can arrange the support that we've agreed you need
- you can continue receiving the same support
- you can have a combination of all these arrangements
Get in touch for more information about social care and financial assessments, or to request an assessment.
Getting to a day centre
If possible you should sort out your own transport to the day centre.
If you have problems using public transport there are other ways you can travel. Visit our transport and travel pages for more information.
