Sharon Collins Resource Centre provides a day service to disabled adults living in Brighton & Hove. Staff are trained to provide a high-quality, tailored and flexible support for people with a range of physical disabilities, learning disabilities and complex health needs.

We are open Monday to Friday offering sessions on a range of activities including: photography, art, yoga, performance, cooking, games, and music. We focus on communication, self-regulation, choice making, life skills and having lots of fun! We are about supporting people and are not defined by one type of support.

What we provide is different for each customer, based on their needs and wishes. Customers can be supported to learn and develop skills in:

  • Caring for themselves
  • Living independently
  • Building and maintaining relationships with friends and family
  • Accessing services, resources and activities in the community

The staff team are also being trained to assess communication needs and sensory profiles so that we can support people with learning other skills such as choice making and communication development, and are working to develop activities that are cognitively stimulating.

At the Sharon Collins Resource Centre, we give disabled adults the opportunity to try a full range of indoor and outdoor leisure and social activities, both individually and as part of a group. This includes:

 

  • creative arts, music and drama, including storytelling and shadow puppetry
  • computer and cookery workshops
  • sensory relaxation
  • leisure activities, including the cinema, bowling and shopping

In the community we support people with any of their desired activities and help to create links in the community, including swimming, horse riding, badminton, arts, shopping, and much more.

Through our flexible support you’ll gain new skills, confidence and independence. It’s your choice what you’ll do.
