Provision of a community-based day service for people with mild to moderate learning disabilities


We support over 55 individuals with mild and moderate learning, and for some physical disability, age 14 upwards. We offer day care support and work based learning opportunities from our Ripon Walled Garden site.  Ripon Walled Garden, has a long history as the old Bishops Palace Garden, is a 4 acre site, open to the public whom we actively encourage to visit. The Woodland, Victorian Orchard and Historic Walled garden provide numerous learning opportunities for our service users who we refer to as Members in horticulture, where we grow plants to sell in the garden nursery, catering where we make home-made produce from our "plot to plate: approach and in retail where we actively encourage Members to practice social skills in the onsite shop and garden nursery. We also offer a comprehensive timetable of activities including numeracy, literacy, dance, drama, health and wellbeing, woodwork and so much more.
