The Saffron Walden Wellbeing Hub offers support for adults with learning disabilities in north-west Essex.

The centre provides a vibrant and stimulating atmosphere where needs and expectations of customers are met through an innovative programme of activities. The centre runs a dynamic theatre group called the Great Pretenders that includes customers in all aspects of theatre production from workshops and actual performances through to costume and set making. The group promotes skills such as team spirit, communication, spatial awareness, coordination and self-expression.

The centre is within easy walking distance of the town which enables customers, with the support of staff, to access facilities such as the library and gym. Customers are also able to join the ramble group and learn about growing fruit and vegetables in the centre's allotment as well as develop photography skills in the camera club.
