Welcome to Active Lives

We are a long established vocational & educational centre for adults with learning difficulties.

We strive to enable our students to improve the quality of their lives vocationally, educationally, socially and emotionally by enhancing their self esteem, increasing their personal growth and achieving the greatest level of independence possible.

On our premises we have the benefit of large front and rear gardens which are secure. Inside we have a day room for relaxation and a cafeteria and kitchen where our students can choose their meals and beverages from our menu. There is also a large hall with a stage and work stations for our programme of activities.

We also have our own mini buses and are able to transport our students.

Active Lives now offers the opportunity for employment training having established our own on line store. Launched in 2014 www.shopfromapound.co.uk has developed into a very successful online retail channel and operated by our students and staff.

Visits to our centre including taster days can be arranged for visitors who would like to explore what we are able to offer students enrolling at Active Lives and we also run annual events to which members of the public are welcome.

We are delighted to announce that with effect from March 2018 our dance programme will be conducted by Joe and Grace from Confidance. They are professionally qualified dance instructors who specialise in running programmes for people with disabilities. You can view their work at http://www.confidance.org.uk/
