Learning disabilities day opportunities

Learning disability day centres provide accessible day services across Derbyshire.


If you wish to participate, there is an open consultation on the future of day services for adults with a learning disability and / or those who are autistic from 28 March 2022 to 19 June 2022. 

Learning disability day centres

We've been working hard with colleagues in public health and health and safety to work out how to increase the numbers of people able to use our services.

In making these decisions it is important we fully consider the safety and welfare of all our service users, their families, and our staff.

We're continuing to keep infection control measures in place whilst the rates of infection from COVID-19 remain prevalent. Unfortunately, this means we still have reduced capacity in our centres.

We review the situation fortnightly.

Planned respite break services have also been suspended. Alternative support is being provided where needed.

Community connectors

Our community connectors work with people who attend learning disability day services or young people in transition. They can help you develop new skills and get involved with activities in your local community. Community connectors can help you find paid or voluntary work, as well as social activity. Please see the easy read community connectors leaflet attached to this page.

Learning disability day services we provide

Markham Vale Land Services (MVLS) and Paid and Voluntary Employment Service (PAVES) provide voluntary and paid work experience in and around Chesterfield, Bolsover and North East Derbyshire.

Adult care assessment

Access to our day services is dependent on your eligibility which is determined by an adult care assessment. Find out more about assessments and eligibility.
