About us

ECL Braintree ensures that your support needs are met in a personalised and flexible way so that you can live as independently as possible in your local community. We're here to help you have the choice and control to enjoy living life the way you choose.

Activities within the Day Centre and outside in the community are offered as part of your day with us. With our centre nestled in the heart of Braintree, you will enjoy lunches out, bowling, trips to the cinema, swimming and coffee stops which are all part of our activities outside the Day Centre.

In-house we offer cooking sessions, sensory activities, music sessions, arts and crafts. Individual programmes are tailored to your individual needs and personal goals.

Our Trusted Assessors will help you to develop your own plan and our care team will support you step by step throughout the journey to follow that plan and reach your goals.

How Does This Service Work?

We pride ourselves in developing support plans tailored to your needs and through a therapeutic programme of activities and events we will support you to maintain choice, control and independence.

Our Approach To Wellbeing

Through a flexible programme of activities which include music, arts & crafts, cookery, IT, pet therapy, sensory sessions and community based events we aim to support you to develop your physical and cognitive wellbeing.

Our highly skilled staff create a warm, happy and positive atmosphere and receive on-going training which enhances the support they provide to you.

Pricing

Prices will depend on the length of your session(s) and the level of support you need. As an example a full day with one of our services would typically start at around £58. Please note that you will be assessed on the levels of support you need.
