About Us

The Country Centre provides a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities for the benefit of all service users, supported by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers.


Activity sessions are based on four criteria; educational, recreational, practical and creative. Service users are supported in gaining life enhancing skills, within a caring and safe environment.

Our vision is to offer personalised care to our service users within a safe, positive environment that encourages friendship, respect and support for each other.


We want our service users to have access to and benefit from opportunities they may not have elsewhere, and feel they are encouraged and supported in participating in productive and meaningful activities.
