We are proud to announce our new community day care centre will be opening soon in Crook.
Community in Mind provides services for young adults with mild learning disabilities who are transitioning from childhood to adult life and so we are here to offer support, guidance and encouragement as they approach the next step after leaving the comfort of school/college.
This will include seeking employment, carrying out daily living skills independently and safely, learning new skills such as cooking and cleaning and making friends and having fun in a safe managed social setting.
