Providing a caring and loving place... The Hub provides an inspirational set of services aimed at people with Autism, communication & learning difficulties.
The Hub Day Center hide

The Hub was opened in 1953 as a special school for children with learning, communication and behavioural difficulties by Alice Hoffmann de Visme MBE. In the 1970's the school became an educational day centre as there were no provisions back then for school leavers.

The Hub provides a service for people with Autism and learning difficulties. A large majority of the service users have not been formally diagnosed with Autism. We are currently open from Mon-Fri between the hours of 9am-3pm for 51 weeks per year. The Hub is closed for bank holidays.

We currently have 15 service users attending on different days. Funding is on a 1:1 or 1:3 basis although this can change depending on a service user's identified needs.

We are happy to discuss the individual needs of any potential service user to see if we can provide any activity specifically tailored for them.
