Day Service Leaflet

The Adventure Service presently operates two Day Services in Nottinghamshire. Our base in Mansfield Woodhouse has been open since August 2011 and more recently our Top Valley Day Service has been open since April 2015. Both centres provide specialist outdoor adventure for adults and teenagers with learning disabilities.

Both services support the Service Users to work towards individualized skills targets. All activities offered are based around outdoor adventure, for example:

Bushcraft/Forest Schools: You can be learning the skills to live comfortably within a natural environment. We do things such as natural crafts, fire lighting, outdoor cooking, environmental awareness, foraging, tool use and much more. We put all these skills into practice in local woodland or our Bushcraft Site! These skills can then be applied to everyday life.

Mountain Biking: We take our Adventurers trail riding around local cycle routes and networks, while also teaching bike maintenance and bike skills back at our centres. We provide a range of different bicycles for our Adventurers that support all abilities of bike riding.

Through our expert instruction and support, the skills that individuals develop during our sessions are transferable into other areas of their lives. For example preparing and cooking a meal on a fire will help to develop relevant skills for independent living.
