Support for adults with a physical impairment

The physical impairment service at the Osmondthorpe Hub and Holt Park Active centres help adults over the age of 18 with physical impairments and/or head injuries to live independently and to take part in social and therapeutic activities within the community.

We have built a national reputation for providing quality services and support to help disabled people to increase their independence, opportunities and life choices.


We want to involve the people who use our services in the planning and delivery of care and support. Anyone can join the User-Involvement Committee which meets once a month, or attend meetings within the council teams and give feedback on the quality of the service.

 

Some quotes from people who have used the service:

“We have so much choice and variety of activities and education courses”

“We get the right level of support from staff at the centre”

“Volunteering gives you a chance to be part of a community. If it wasn’t for the their support then it wouldn’t be possible”

“We get treated like a person first rather than looking at what our disability is”​

Click to expandWhat are the centres?

The centres help anyone with a physical impairment and/or a head injury. They offer a variety of activities within the centres themselves but can also help to build confidence and promote independence so that people can visit other places. People who attend the centres can learn new skills, join support groups, socialise, be creative or simply have fun. Each person using the services is supported through consultation to identify an individual programme that best meets their needs and has realistic outcomes.
  
The aims of the centres are to support and empower the people using the service to have greater independence, personal choice and control over their life.
