9th May 2022

Want to pursue your passions or get creative? We have opportunities for adults with learning disabilities and autism to join our day service in Waterlooville.

Service manager Naomi said: “At Waterlooville day service we offer a range of activities such as: accessible bike riding, badminton, cooking and baking, swimming, ICT, beauty, recycling and Zumba. However, we are led by our members and what they enjoy doing, so we are always open to new ideas and activities.

“The team at Waterlooville are very community based and the members love to go out as a group and go shopping on market day followed by a trip to the pub for some refreshments.

“We support a mixture of age groups and the service is very active, friendly, warm and welcoming. The staff team are dedicated and passionate and are always looking for new ways to support members to achieve their goals.”

Our day service is in the heart of Waterlooville with many local amenities within walking distance. There is also an MPV car for accessing the community. Local bus routes are also easily available.

Our members love the opportunities they have at Waterlooville day service. Member Les said: “I like going to day service to spend time with my friends, my favourite session is snack cookery.”

Fred said: “For me its about making new friends and I have just asked a girl I like to be my girlfriend from another service. I meet her through the Easter disco at On Track in Petersfield and asked her to be my girlfriend – she only said yes!

“We now have regular facetimes sessions, this makes me so happy.”
