Acorns Day Services provides daytime activities and learning opportunities for over 30 people with a learning disability and complex needs, five days a week.
We work with people to build their confidence and skills, opening up opportunities they may never have thought possible.
There is a choice of pottery, art, IT/media, sports, music and sensory classes, cooking, retail (in our coffee shop and Charity Shops), horticulture and caring for small animals. The main emphasis of Acorns Day Services is for those attending to have fun and achieve a meaningful outcome; whether it be creative, social, educational, developmental or therapeutic.
Acorns is open to residents and non-residents alike. Recently, we have seen an increase in people with more challenging behaviour and complex needs, and can offer one-to-one or two-to-one support, depending upon the individual.
Through Acorns, we have established a pathway that enables people to enjoy leisure and social activities that can also lead on to developing life skills and even training for voluntary or paid work.
