If you’re looking for a safe space to learn new skills and connect with your peers, then you need to get down to the Hub! Offering much more than just a place to hang out, the Hub is a place where you can truly live daily life to its fullest, in vibrant and friendly surroundings.
Open for 50 weeks of the year, our incredible team are here to welcome you with a mix of activities shaped around your individual needs, reflecting your passions and interests to make sure you get the most out of your time at the Hub.
Our one-of-a-kind provision also gives you access to our renowned onsite facilities including:
LSC – Our uniquely modern and vibrant facility where you can explore your creativity and stimulate your senses.
Patchwork Farm – Our therapeutic care farm giving you a hands-on multi-sensory experience with a number of animals.
Fitness Centre – Supporting your health & wellbeing in our gym, spa, yoga space and hydrotherapy pool.
Dream Centre - Our immersive space can take you anywhere in the world, from swimming with fishes to a trip to a nightclub, the world is at your finger tips.
The Hub is a flexible provision, and we aim to build everything around you where we can.
All of our facilities are designed to meet the needs of people with very complex needs including those who need significant clinical support and supervision. Most of the people who attend have one-to-one or two-to-one support during the day.
Leaving school or college is a huge milestone and we are here to support you with the next steps, making the journey as smooth as possible. Being open 50 weeks of the year means you will be able to join us during school holidays.
The Hub offers you a chance to meet friends, try out new activities, learn new skills, improve your health & wellbeing and become more confident in everyday life.
We recognise that this gradual learning approach crafts a truly positive transition.
It’s never too early to start coming to the Hub, we support people from the age of 16, and you can pop along during the school holidays to try things out and see whether it fits for you.
We also offer a Holiday Club option if you are under 16, which is run in partnership with the Hub and plan to open a 16+ Holiday Club soon.
Offering bespoke personal support, our expert teams are committed to creating packages that are shaped around you as an individual. Our highly skilled staff include clinical support from registered health practitioners, allowing us to deliver personalised support to meet even the most complex of needs.
Our flexible packages also offer the option for you to attend the Hub with your own Personal Assistant (PA) if you wish.
Expert support workers are recruited to match not only the support needs but also the personality and interests of the young person and their family.
Building and delivering support services requires incredible skill, patience and expertise not only from our frontline staff but also from the clinical specialists we work alongside.
Our community services teams have access to a network of highly skilled professionals in Positive Behaviour Support, Speech and Language Therapy, Physiotherapy, Rebound Therapy, Nursing and Intervenors.
Our Senior Leadership Team in the department oversees the work of these individuals and carefully designs input bespoke to each individual and the staff working with them.
Our staff are what make the Hub a truly special place, creating positive changes to each person who comes through the doors.
Equipped with the right skills and qualifications but most importantly the right attitude towards caring for people with complex physical and/or sensory impairments and associated health needs. Our team of experts work together to help you get the most out of your time spent at the hub with an emphasis on creating a safe and fun environment for each person to engage and reach their full potential.
We are proud to embed a culture of Positive Behaviour Support across all our services and trained Link Workers act as ambassadors to ensure we develop truly person-specific support plans.
All of our staff undertake specialist qualifications in a broad range of areas which equip them with the necessary skills to create fabulous experiences.
