Day services in East Lothian

togetherOur Day Services provide support for people with learning and physical disabilities aged 16 and over following an assessment carried out by one of our community care workers.

We have resource centres for adults with learning disabilities in Haddington, Port Seton and Musselburgh. We also have a centre for people with physical disabilities in Prestonpans.

There are limited spaces available at each centre and attendance is only available following assessment.

What services are available?

Each of our centres provides a mix of activities designed to help people have fun and develop new skills, confidence and independence in a fun and supportive environment.
 
Activities on offer will vary, but could include sports, art, drama and gardening. We also provide independent living skills classes. If required, we can arrange transport to take you to and from the resource centre.

You can download contact details and opening hours for our resource centres.

How much will it cost?

Activities provided in the centres are free of charge. Sometimes we will arrange special day trips or external activities (such as bowling), which may incur a charge. Lunch is available during the day, at a cost of £2.03.

Can I choose which centre to attend?

Yes, as long as there is a space available and we agree that your chosen centre will best meet your assessed needs. Generally, people choose the centre that is closest to their home.

How often will I visit?

How often you visit and how long you stay for will depend on your assessed needs. We will discuss this with you and your family or carer when we carry out your assessment.

Assessment and eligibility for services

We use assessments to make sure our recommendations are appropriate, will address your needs and meet our eligibility criteria. To find out more about this please read our assessment of need section.

All calls charged at low cost.
