Day Services

We provide meaningful day activities for adults with learning & communication difficulties in the community.

Our programme has been developed to suit the needs, interests and aspirations of Day Service members. We work with our members to offer a series of activities throughout the week for both small groups and individualised plans.

Making the most of our connections with the College, the local community and Homefield’s enterprises, our activities are planned and organised to enable our members to develop and maintain skills for the future. We pride ourselves in providing support in a safe, friendly and confidential environment where our Day Service members are encouraged to attain a full and active involvement within the community.

Some of the activities we offer include:
