Kirklees Council provides day opportunities for adults who have a learning disability and who may have additional physical disabilities too.
Day opportunities provide a safe, informal, friendly place for you to make friends and enjoy both community activities and activities in the centres. They can also give carers or family a break from their caring roles and take some time for their own interests.
To find out if you are eligible for this service please contact Gateway to care.
Many people feel anxious at the thought of using day opportunities but you can be pleasantly surprised when you find out what we can offer as a service. This could benefit the individual and their family.
How to get day care
To get day care funded by the Council you must be meet our eligibility for care and support criteria.
If you meet the criteria we will need to take a close look at your situation, so we can work with you to decide if day care is the best option for you. We do this through a care needs assessment.
