Established in 1993 by Jim Parker as an alternative to the traditional day services.

Over the past 25+ years we have developed as a service provider to offer a wider range of activities around our core working principles.

Our service is divided into 6 main groups all with lots of alternatives and choices of options to meet all our service users needs, with everyone encouraged to take part in all aspects,

Although we try to get users to vary there work pattern and get involved and work with other users in group tasks. They usually find a job that they enjoy and do more often than others.
