Day centres for people with learning disabilities

There is eligibility criteria and an assessment will be required to use this service. Please contact our customer service centre on 0300 300 8303 for further information.

We run 3 day centres for people with learning disabilities:

  • Biggleswade Centre, London Road, Biggleswade
  • Townsend Centre in Houghton Regis
  • Silsoe Horticultural Centre in Silsoe

The Biggleswade and Townsend Centres offer a range of community and centre based activities, including opportunities for people who have high support needs.

Customers are encouraged to tell us what kind of activities they want to get involved in and we try to provide these wherever possible, either within the centres or by helping them to access what is available in the community.

Silsoe Horticultural Centre is set on a 3 acre site. It provides customers with opportunities to work on a range of horticultural and retail activities including:

  • growing and harvesting crops
  • preparing jams and chutneys
  • serving in a coffee shop
  • helping with retail sales

To find out more about the services outlined above please contact our Adult Learning Disability Team on 0300 300 8100.
