Day Services

Day Services-Two People Talking

Day services are about learning too! They can offer lots of new things to do and give you the choice to do activities. These can help with independence, learning, getting a job or even just a chance for you to relax.

They can offer activities based on your own needs and interests including independent living skills, volunteering, art, drama and leisure activities.

There are several day centres around Calderdale which are open Monday to Friday. Please contact Lower Valley Support Services on 01422 381206 to find out more.

You can also find out more about day services from the Community Learning Disability Team. They will be able to arrange a visit for you if you want to check out the service. The day centre staff will be happy to talk to you about what is on offer.
