Out and About Dorset

We are a day care facility for adults with severe to moderate learning difficulties. Our aim is to enhance independence and social interaction by creating opportunities where you (our service users) can feel in control. We pride ourselves on having fantastic facilities where we can practice those all important functional skills on a regular basis.

We are lead by our service users on what you require and want to get out of our service. This enables us to support you in gaining confidence to make choices.
