Daylight: Day Centre for Adults with LD

Add to CPD

Service update

Daylight’s service was suspended in March 2020, moving to an online support provision where virtual activities are facilitated via Zoom. The Daylight team carries out regular welfare calls offering emotional support, signposting relevant services to support with the pandemic and continue to work in partnership with ILDP social services to safeguard the vulnerable people, and their families, that the service supports.

 


Daylight is a day centre for adults with varying degrees of learning disabilities. LD has to be the primary disability, however a lot of people using Daylight have additional physical needs, with some falling under dual diagnosis.

The service is increasingly outcome focused, and tries to meet the identified needs of an individual so that they can develop new skills and lead as independent a life as possible. Integrating into the community and using facilities in the community are integral parts of the service at Daylight. 

On site activities include: catering, art, drama, music, pottery, sewing, knitting, Boccia, yoga, gardening, dance, wheelchair dance, massage and multi-sensory. 

Community access includes swimming, museums, galleries, bowling, hydrotherapy, trampolining, ice skating.
