Gener8 – What do we do? 

Gener8 is for young people from 14 years old to 24 years old with a range of learning disabilities.  We are based at Harpenden House on Edwards Lane in Sherwood, Nottingham.  Our days are filled with fun, with some in- house activity days and a variety of days out in the community.  The young people that attend can access arts and crafts, singing, music, dancing, drama, computers, X-Box and Wii, pool and outdoor fun including football, basketball, lacrosse and cricket.  We go on a range of trips including the cinema, Stonebridge City Farm and meals out in the community, amongst many others.  

As part of transition into adulthood we develop independent travel skills, personal hygiene awareness, money and cooking skills.  We also focus on developing self-confidence and self-esteem.  Our ethos encourages respect for each other and our environment, and promotes socialisation skills within the group.  

When is our service available? 

Gener8 is on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month.  The session runs from 11 am to 4 pm. 

How can I access this service? 

You can access this service by using your personal budget (direct payment or any other form), direct funding through your local authority or private funds.
