What We Do

QE2 Activity Centre provides activity sessions and day services for people of all ages with additional needs including learning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities and sensory impairment.


Over the course of forty years QE2 Activity Centre has established itself as one of the UK’s leading providers of activity opportunities for people with disabilities.


The Centre, in the River Hamble Country Park between Bursledon and Hedge End, provides activity sessions and day services for children and adults with a range of additional needs.

Day Services

There are three QE2 Activity Centre day services for adults with learning disabilities: the GreenHouse, Team Q and Gold.


These all have their own focus, because not everybody wants the same thing. Some people want to be very active, some people like to go at a more leisurely pace; our aim is to help you find what is right for you.

Activity Sessions

Deep down we all just want to have fun – but outdoor activities are so much more than that – taking part in activities contributes to lifelong learning and good health.


For adults and children with additional needs.
