Socialise Day Centre for Adults with Disabilities

We are a day service providing community activities for vulnerable adults. 

Socialise provides personalised support for all adults with disabilities and complex needs. We support people with learning disabilities, multiple health needs, acquired brain injuries, autistic spectrum disorders, physical disabilities and sensory and communication impairments.

Minimum age 16, our eldest member is currently 84. We offer safe and stimulating activities to adults with disabilities, elderly and special needs. We also do trips out and special events.

All our staff are NVQ trained in Health and Social care, DBS checked and a first aider is on site. Every Tuesday we run an art class and have a qualified massage therapist who offers free hand/arm massage to our members and carers. We also have a lovely sensory garden growing vegetables and flowers. FREE TRIAL to any new members.
