About us

ECL Chelmsford 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.

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.

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.

Our customer's stories...

Sally had been attending our Day Centre for a number of months, two days a week. She engaged in various activities but expressed that she would like to learn skills to enable her to earn her own money.

Sally was supported by the team to engage in activities around her interests, which was food and cooking.

Sally started by partaking in cooking sessions and soon became proficient to a level where she was able to transfer one of her sessions to ECL work-based training to learn greater skills around catering for the public.

Sally now undertakes all her day sessions there and is moving towards her goal of paid employment in the catering industry.

Our aim is to always help our customers progress and work towards reaching their goals.
