Day service facilities offer a range of supported activities in the local community. These usually include a mixture of work, leisure and educational skills, and should be available for anyone over 16 who needs support. Many day facilities will also offer evening and weekend activities.
To find out about day services in your area, you can get in touch with your local social services, or in England you can speak to your Connexions advisor about what is available. Specialist organisations, such as Mencap and Home Farm Trust (HFT), also offer day opportunities.
