Day Services

There are three strands to QE2 Activity Centre day services:  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.

Green House

A vocational day service for adults with learning disabilities with a variety of learning and creative opportunities. Each day has a varied programme with three themes running through: work skills, independent living and personal development. With a choice of activities team members have the opportunity to develop skills within their own areas of interest as well as trying new things.

Monday to Friday; 9:30 to 3:30.
Cost £60 per day.

Gold Day Service

Is ideal for people with higher support needs who like to stay busy and active. Gold offers the opportunity to try new things and learn new skills. The focus is on personal wellbeing and enrichment. We encourage our team to stay fit, physically and mentally, through engaging with their surroundings; making the most of the 400 acre River Hamble Country Park.

Monday to Friday; 9:30 to 3:30.
Cost £60 per day.

Team Q

An active day service for active people! The day service that goes the extra mile. Team Q supports its members to develop their skills in a range of activities as well as offering an annual activity holiday (additional cost).

Every Thursday, 9:30 to 3:30.
Cost £60 per day.

Early Birds

From January 2020 our day service regulars will be able to sign up for our Early Birds session.  This will operate between 8:00 and 9:30, Monday to Friday (subject to demand), before Greenhouse, Gold or Team Q activities start.

 

The programme will be tailored to the wants and needs of those attending but may include woodland walks, gentle keep fit exercises, photography, games and exploration of our natural surroundings.

The Late Shift

We will also be offering a late afternoon session for day service regulars between 3.30 and 5.00, initially just on Wednesdays and Fridays.

 

Instructors and day service staff will provide a programme of activities including canoeing, kayaking and motorboat, climbing, rifle shooting and archery, bushcraft, indoor games and sports.

Additional Information

There are some things all of our day services have in common:

  • stimulating, challenging and fun,
  • a place to meet others and  make new friends,
  • a place where you can learn new skills that will help you every day,
  • a place where you will have the opportunity to try new things,
  • a place to spend time enjoying the countryside,
  • an environment that is safe
  • and a place to take part in activities that contribute to lifelong learning and good health.

Our aim is to help each member of our team fulfil their potential and become more independent.  We aim our sights high and encourage individuals to try new challenges and develop skills in a safe, managed, creative environment.  We help our team members to develop skills to live independently and contribute to their community.

Every day has a varied programme with three themes running through:  work skills, independent living and personal development.  With a choice of activities team members have the opportunity to develop skills within their own areas of interest as well as trying new things.

Staff and service users work together to make sure everyone gets the best from their time here.
