Daycare for people with Learning Disability

We aim to provide religiously and culturally appropriate daycare development support for young adults with learning disabilities.

For the Khidmat Centres the need of our service users and their carers is fundamental in the development of our service delivery.

We ALSO have a funky sensory room!

We have a funky sensory room!

Here at The Khidmat Centre we have a brand new Sensory Room. Sensory Rooms offer huge benefits to a wide range of users regardless of their age or ability. Sensory rooms have a variety of functions, for example some people may have senses that need to be stimulated via vibration whereas others have senses that are better stimulated with lights or sounds.
