Northumberland County Council runs eight day centres helping more than 170 adults with learning disabilities to acquire new skills. These include learning to grow plants, make jewellery, ceramics, cakes and reclaim/sell old furniture. Products are marketed as ‘Made in Northumberland’, with any money made reinvested in this service.
We provide vulnerable adults with a great opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people and develop confidence and self-esteem while preparing them for future employment or voluntary work. Wherever possible, activities are delivered in the local community, making it easier for people to attend on a regular basis.
We offer instruction in horticultural skills and work experience to adults with learning disabilities living within travelling distance of Hepscott Park.
