Here at Waltham Forest Day Services, located in Walthamstow, we provide day services for people with learning and physical disabilities.
We opened our doors in 2010 to provide local community-based day services for the people from Waltham Forest and the surrounding areas.
The person-centred programme is varied and stimulating, with each individual having a bespoke programme tailored to meet their individual needs. Depending on the activity or session, people can take part on their own, with staff support, within a group or one-to-one.
Activities are not solely based at the service and take place using local community facilities, helping to provide a wider choices of activities and better opportunities for service users to become integrated into community life.
Service users can take part in a range of social and leisure activities including hydrotherapy, pottery, trips to the cinema and dining out in local restaurants. Our staff also encourage service users to keep fit and active and regularly arrange trampolining sessions, swimming and horse riding.
We have the use of a fleet of well-maintained vehicles which is used for transport of our service users and if needed, community activities for those that would find it difficult to use community transport.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff. Charlie has settled in well and is enjoying all of the wonderful activities you do with him. I am really impressed that you took him to the cinema, and how he enjoyed this so much. The staff are great and caring, and this means so much to us as a family.” Parent of a service user.
