Activity & Learning Hub Services

The aim of the Activity and Learning Hub (ALH) is to enable adults with a learning disability aged 18 years and over to live the life they choose and learn new skills through meaningful daytime activities. The project is person-centred and focuses on encouraging development for individuals whether that be in education, social skills, self-confidence, independence hobbies etc. Individuals are assessed on their needs and given a trial before being allocated a place to ensure suitability for the individual. ALH is an invoiced service that runs Monday to Friday 9:30am to 4:30pm.
