Drop-in Centre

Our drop-in centre ('The Hive') is for adults with learning disabilities in Bristol and South Gloucestershire aged 18 and over. It is a drop-in service so you don't need to book or come every day. The centre is for leisure, socialising and workshops. Members can choose what they want to do.

The building is fully accessible and has a toilet with a hoist. Our staff and volunteers are there to facilitate activities and to socialise with the members, but do not provide personal care. Anyone attending who requires personal care will need to bring their own support worker with them.

Learn more about the drop-in

There is a registration form to fill out and a charge of £6 per session (or part of session) attended. A session will be a morning or afternoon. People may, ofcourse, stay for more than one session in a day.

You can find The Hive at: 322-324 Two Mile Hill Road, Kingswood, Bristol, BS15 1AJ

The Hive’ gives “me the opportunity to socialise and get out of the house. It helps with my depression” Julie, Hive Member

“The Hive has a very friendly atmosphere and everyone, members and volunteers, are very supportive of each other.

I like that members have a choice of activity or can just sit and chat.
Everyone is very accepting of each other which makes for a relaxing, enjoyable time."
Yvonne, UWE Social Work Student
