Day opportunities

Getting out and about in the community is an important step in boosting confidence, learning new skills, and socialising. We run two “day opportunities” groups that can help you take these steps and make the most of your community. You’ll be treated as an individual and you can be sure of a warm, friendly welcome.

We have a diverse mix of people attending – people of all ages and from those who need a little support to those with more complex needs. Either way, you’ll find our fully trained staff are focused on helping you stay independent and have fun.

We also offer day opportunities at Humphry Repton House Day Centre, specialising in providing a homely environment for people with a diagnosis of dementia and physical care needs.

Please note that our day opportunities are currently closed due to the coronavirus outbreak, but we will be up and running again as soon as possible.

Humphry Repton House Day Centre

The Day Centre provides a social and supportive environment for people with a diagnosis of dementia and physical care needs to enjoy a day tailored to them. At the Day Centre, there is a wonderful garden, lots of games, quizzes and arts and crafts for residents to enjoy as well as a music entertainer that also visits.

Staff are experienced in the challenges presented to those caring for loved ones with dementia and are available to discuss the management of changing care needs at home and the demands of caring full time.

The Day Centre is open Monday – Friday, 9.30am – 4.30pm with lunch and refreshments provided. For more information, please see the attached brochure by clicking here, call Denise Cullen, Home Manager, on 0117 959 2255 or visit the service’s page by clicking here.

Stepping Forward South Glos

Stepping Forward South Glos is based at The Batch Community Centre in Warmley and meets every weekday. At this group, you can take part in all sorts of activities like swimming, Zumba, cooking, woodland projects and crafts (you’ll even be able to sell your creations at local craft fairs as well).

Stepping Forward South Glos can also help you find paid employment and voluntary work. It’s done this for people like Matt who now works at a farm café, and Kev who works at a local charity. Others have gone on to find work at libraries and nurseries.

I've never seen him so happy, he has been excellently supported with his depression. His mood and wellbeing have been consistently great since he's joined you.

Stepping Forward Bristol

Stepping Forward Bristol is based at The Park in Knowle. It’s a lively, well-equipped social hub that meets every weekday. Those who come along to this group can be sure of a busy and varied timetable of activities such as visits to local attractions like the theatre, museums and the seaside, bowling, gym sessions and bingo.

The group is equal parts supportive and social, friends are easily made here and you can take part in as many or as few activities as you want. Whether you want to chill out with a cuppa or go on exciting boat trips down the River Avon (weather permitting of course!), there will be something to suit you.
