Activity and Learning Hub provides daytime provisions for adults with a learning disability in Sheffield.
Activity and Learning hub is one of the daytime projects run at Sheffield Mencap and Gateway. The aim of the Activity and Learning Hub is to enable adults with a learning difficulty to lead a more independent life by learning new life skills through meaningful daytime activities. We offer a range of person centred educational courses and activity sessions Monday to Friday, 45 weeks of the year.
Mondays and Tuesdays offer accredited education courses that are delivered by qualified tutors and learning support assistants enabling members to work toward a recognised AQA qualification in a number of subject areas which include cookery, arts and crafts, theatre, animation, film making and many more.
Wednesday groups offer a relaxing atmosphere and focus on developing basic skills. Activities include Media, Cooking and Arts and Crafts.
Thursday and Friday offer activity sessions including Sewing, Drama, Creative Writing, Gardening, Cardcrafts, Art, and our own café called ‘Mencafe’.
