Welcome to Brookside Day Centre
Brookside Day Centre provides modern day care services for adults with learning disabilities. The Brookside story began in 2009, when a derelict Northampton public house was transformed into an award winning community hub. Brookside day centre has been working on the idea of providing not only day care services but opportunities for individuals to have an active choice in how they spend their time, enabling a sense of purpose and wellbeing. We aim to provide activities that will meet the needs of the individual, moving away from the “one size fits all” approach and wholeheartedly embracing person centred practices.
We cater for adults with a learning disability at our brand new premises in Northampton’s town centre. The design has been very much with our customers in mind, we have a calming and modern environment with areas for activities, quiet reflection along with social spaces for communal times. Our rooftop garden will be used to grow organic fruit and vegetables that will be used to prepare tasty lunches and snacks. This will be tended by those who enjoy gardening. At Brookside we appreciate we are all individuals and want our customers to have a sense of purpose and fulfilment. All of our activities will aim to:
- Build independence
- Create social experiences, develop friendships and positive relationships
- Enable life skills
- Grow confidence
- Support self esteem and awareness
- Increase health & wellbeing
- Enable real work experience
Our centre has been designed with wheelchair users in mind and we have lift access to all floors. However, we appreciate that our first and second floor location may be unsuitable for some people.
