Day services

Since 1978 QE2 Activity Centre has gained a reputation as a leading provider of services for people with disabilities.

In 2010 we began offering day services for adults with learning disabilities alongside our activity programmes.
Starting at 9:30 each weekday morning until 3:30 in the afternoon each day offers a mixture of activities designed to develop work skills and independent living skills and promote active leisure and healthy lifestyles.  The cost is £60 per day.

Catering for everyone

The three QE2 Activity Centre day services each have their own focus, because not everybody wants the same thing.  Our aim is to help you find what is right for you.

The GreenHouse

The GreenHouse will help you learn skills you need to live more independently and that are valued in the workplace.

Here are some of the things you can do:  

work in our gardens and allotment; 
learn about healthy eating and food hygiene, shopping and budgeting; 

prepare food and cook in our well-equipped kitchen; 
learn about working in hospitality during café time; 
develop literacy, numeracy and IT skills; 

be  creative.
We’re also keen to make sure that our team is fit and healthy so as well as making sure we’re eating well there are opportunities to take part in active leisure activities.

Gold day service

Gold day service provides opportunities for adults with learning disabilities and more complex needs.

Gold members take part in activities like canoeing and archery, arts and crafts, cooking and baking, exploring the woodland, music and movement, sensory activities and gardening.  

The Gold day service building includes a fully equipped sensory room and Changing Places toilet.

The programme is full and active but taken at a pace that is appropriate for group members.

Team Q

If you like adventure and new challenges this is the group for you!  The programme of activities includes canoeing, climbing, archery, ropes course and geocaching with an annual residential activity holiday.

Having new experiences and tackling challenges, learning new skills and becoming more proficient in activities all help to develop your ability to look after yourself. 
Team Q takes place every Thursday 9:30 until 3:30.
