Barnabas is a lively, sociable and well-equipped day opportunity setting for up to 30 with disabilities who want to meet and make new friends try new skills or develop existing ones, enabling individuals to reach their full potential and enjoy a wide range of opportunities and experiences.

Whenever possible we work together with the local community for activities and projects, encouraging independence of thought and actions.

Looking forward, we aim to provide additional facilities in the community in the form of drop-in settings in town centres or social enterprises providing integrated employment opportunities in the community.

Qualified training and support staff oversee the person centred plan for each student,  identifying what the person really wants to achieve and how we can support them to reach their full potential.
