The Elms Community Centre

The Elms is part of our day service for adults with a learning disability and the centre can support up to 20 people on any one day.

We take a person centred approach to care and will support people to develop skills and knowledge to help them to both express themselves as a unique individual and to feel confident within their local community.


We can support people to take part in a wide range of activities, either inside our bases or out in the community.  Here are some examples of the regular activities people take part in:

  • Cookery skills for pleasure and home 
  • Arts and crafts
  • Health and lifestyle – Gym, swimming, walking, movement to music, Wheels for All, toning table
  • Multi sensory stimulation/relaxation
  • College and education support
  • Volunteering and work based assessments and training
  • Developing relationships with your local community



We also work with people to develop an individually tailored support plan with appropriate risk assessments. This makes sure we offer a service that is respectful and meets every person's identified needs. This may include support with the following :-

  • Personal care, including supporting to go to the bathroom
  • Support with meals and nutrition
  • Support with medication 
  • Positive behavioural support
  • Safeguarding
  • Advice, information and signposting to other professionals/services
