Our Day Service is a bespoke service designed to meet our members’ needs and runs weekdays between 9.30am and 3.30pm. We have 13 members who attend at various times during the week, not all at the same time. Some of our members have additional support to access elements of Day Service. We occupy a lovely big room with fun things to do and lots of learning opportunities. We also have a separate sitting room and games / cosy room that can be used for members who may need a little quiet time and we make regular use of other facilities in our building.
We have worked with our young members to offer a wide range of activities that will not only be enjoyed but benefit and improve their lives and independence. Our activities include the Gym, Swimming, Bowling, Dance, Travel and Transport training, Shopping trips, Walking, Arts and Craft.
We have had a new training kitchen and laundry room installed where our members can learn cooking and life skills and we have linked into other Gateway activities. We have joined the Sports group and Football training with the Newcastle United Foundation coaches and we also support our young people in their work experience placements.
