Location

Situation

Our adult centres are based in Exeter, Tiverton, Okehampton, Torquay, Exmouth and Honiton. These centres offer rehabilitation and support to clients in a social environment. Clients are encouraged to relearn lost skills and develop new ones while forming friendships and meeting people who have had similar experiences. We offer a wide range of beneficial activities at our centres. This includes running art sessions to improve clients’ fine motor skills, offering IT facilities to improve computer-literacy, and encouraging clients to get involved in the preparation of meals. All of these activities help clients acquire new skills and interests, build friendships and improve their ability to live independently. Further funding would enable us to: offer a wider range of rehabilitative opportunities to people with brain injuries such as outdoor activities, therapeutic sessions and day trips; give all of our staff specialist training to ensure that they are able to offer the highest possible quality of care; and help to ensure the security and sustainability of our centre services.
