Creative Day Services

We can support you and give you a chance to learn and develop skills. You might want to work with wood, or learn to work and make things with glass or clay. Make puppets and take part in puppet shows.  Learn to weave, knit or sew. Paint or draw. You can also get the chance to show your work in exhibitions. Do you like working with food? We can offer you the chance to learn in our Bakery and Confectionery. Prepare and cook food in our Canteens. What else can you do? You could work in our shop, the Mulberry Bush.  Or work in our Tools workshop, repairing donated tools and sewing machines.  We then send the tools to help people in Africa. If you like working outdoors you might want to be part of our Land Group. You can do gardening work in our own garden or places like Vogrie Country Park.

Admissions update:

Due to the current situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have been forced to close our day service buildings and our admissions process and visits are on hold.

We hope that when this period of lockdown and social distancing is over you will still be interested in finding out more about our day services.

As soon as we are able to resume new admissions we will post an update on this website.
