As a practitioner working in the social care field for over 20 years I have seen and heard many...
Five of the best!
Each year we meet with many families and professionals looking for day service opportunities for their loved ones.
The Adventure Service Ltd takes the support of individuals with additional needs very seriously and strives to provide the best service possible. To us, being out canoeing on a lake, climbing in the Peak District or rambling through the beautiful local countryside is sheer bliss! However, we recognise that outdoor activities might not be to everyone’s tastes.
For this reason, we have compiled a list of service providers who we feel have a solid reputation in the Mansfield area for delivering the best possible support.
1 Space Inclusive is an East Midlands based support provider founded in 2010 for people who have a learning disability and autism. They work with people in a range of ways to help them in their daily lives.
2 Reach Mansfield offers clients a variety of fun, challenging and stimulating activities that build confidence and encourage healthier lifestyles. Based at the St. John’s Centre close to the middle of town, their five-day service offers an exciting learning programme.
3 Mansfield Day Service reaches out to a wide group of people, covering an age range of nineteen upwards. Offering an imaginative and flexible service for people, who require close support and supervision and to people working towards living as independently as possible in their local community.
