Day Centre

Our experienced, enthusiastic and friendly team help Day Centre members with a wide range of appropriate, worthwhile and attainable activities. These support and encourage members to achieve their personal development goals, whether practical, social or educational. Activities are planned, where possible, to meet the member’s individual needs in accordance with their own preferences and Goals.

Among the many options available are: Cookery, Gardening, Woodwork, Computing, Needlework and various Arts and Crafts including Mosaic Work and Painting. Social activities include games, quizzes, outings and social events organised by the Members’ Committee.

Each member is assessed on an individual basis and comprehensive care plans and risk assessments are completed and reviewed regularly. Members are encouraged to be involved with bi-monthly members meetings, chaired by a staff member, and all actions from these meetings are directed to the relevant individual.

Each year we hold a summer and Christmas fete where we have a range of stalls. Crafts that are sold are made by the members and all funds that are raised are used to buy materials, equipment for arts and crafts and to fund trips and other social events.

Eligibility for Day Centre membership is subject to assessment by Social Services, or assessed by our management team for those individuals who are privately funding or have individual budgets. We are happy to give you more information informally and welcome people to come and have a look around our services.

Transport from Home to Yercombe for individuals referred by social services is provided each day by the Stroud Volunteer Centre Ring & Ride Bus Service.
