Council run day services

We support adults with a range of needs including people with physical and sensory impairments, dementia and learning difficulties. We can help people to gain, maintain and maximise their independence.

Sporting Memories weekly groups are a friendly place where people with dementia can tell us about their favourite sporting memories and hear stories from others who also love their sport.
