The Otium Centre is a privately-owned day provision for young adults from the age of 16 upwards who have additional needs, learning difficulties and/or physical disability. We are situated in Oulton, making us ideally situated for members throughout the Waveney district and surrounding locality.
The Otium Centre is a modern and fun-loving day care facility with a relaxed, warm and welcoming atmosphere. Our aim is to also provide the tools necessary for you to achieve your full potential in a safe and happy environment and to provide a wide selection of interesting, integrated and useful activities that can be tied to your personal goals. We work in quite a structured way, both to advance the identified specific goals that have been agreed, and to take advantage of any educational opportunities so far gained and to help expand and develop them further.
We believe at The Otium Centre that all individuals have the right to be treated equally, with respect and dignity. Through our diverse range of activities, we can support you in either working towards your personal achievement goals , to develop as much social confidence and independence as possible. as well as enjoy a hobby or interest.
Breakfast, a two-course lunch and afternoon tea is available with our key packages (see details in Our Services) and we expect all Members to join together at these times. We believe that socialisation and interactive skills are important - planning together, preparing together, eating together; talking together; being together, are healthy and progressive and rewarding and should be encouraged. Making choices is a normal human activity and we encourage all Members, if possible, to participate, learn to accept responsibilities and to hopefully develop better social skills.
We hope to cater for most dietary requirements. Soft drinks and fresh fruit will be available each day.
