A little about Freedom

The Freedom Day Centre supports those with learning difficulties with the aim to help our service users to gain new skills, grow in independence and become more involved in the community. We host a variety of activities that meet educational, social and therapeutic needs. These include maths, English and science, computer courses, sensory relaxation, swimming, art and design, woodwork, football with our football team (Freedom United), gardening with our local church and at our allotment, cooking in our kitchen and working in our cafe, dancing and drama which we show to the public in our talent shows and performances. We also do group outings such as day trips to theme parks, zoos and museums. We were also invited to the houses of parliament by our local MP for a day out which was fantastic.

Another important part of our day centre is Cafe Freedom, which is our “inclusive” cafe, meaning we will do our best to meet everyone’s needs. We serve homemade meals at an affordable price and include daily meal offers throughout the week. All proceeds from our cafe go back into our day centre.

Over the past two years we have received a tremendous amount of support from our local community and members of the public, this has enabled us to become a well established service that now provides a wide range of facilities for everyone to ​​enjoy​​
