Hello. We're a forward thinking Day Centre which offers support and day care for adults with autism and / or learning disabilities. We help our customers lead fulfilling and enjoyable lives through our supportive facilities, providing a friendly environment with a focus on safe and independent living.
ECL Colchester 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 goal.
Vocational Work-Based Training
Here at ECL Colchester, we offer vocational work-based training within our training enterprises which will help build your knowledge, skills and confidence. Supported by our friendly care team, we'll help you gain valuable work-based experience that will give you opportunity for paid employment in the future.
We have two fully functioning enterprises in and outside the Day Centre. ECL Cafe - Colchester teaches skills within the catering sector, and ECL Creative Design - Colchester supports customers wishing to develop skills within art and design.
Your experience with our work-based training services will start by meeting one of our Trusted Assessors who will support you to set goals for the future.
We'll work with you on this and help develop a programme to get you there. As you work through our programme you'll be gaining new skills and working towards your hopes for the future.
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 £62. Please note that you will be assessed on the levels of support you need.
