The future day offer for adults with disabilities and older people

Townsend Day Centre review (Houghton Regis)

We want to enhance our day service based on customer, relative, carer and day service staff feedback. We want to offer more personalised options based on the things customers, relatives and carers say are important to them.


We have worked with Townsend Day Centre service customers, carers and relatives and day centre staff to identify new activities and experiences that customers might enjoy or might like to try. The outcome of this research will be used to identify new opportunities which current and future customers could benefit from. This may include running activities from alternative venues.

The Dunstable Centre

The Dunstable Centre could offer some customers that currently attend Townsend Day Centre the opportunity to access a range of leisure and library activities. It is also in an ideal location for customers to be able to access other amenities in the local area, such as the theatre or college. Small groups of customers, supported by Townsend staff, have visited the new centre to participate in a variety of activities.

The Townsend Day Centre service will continue to run as normal and the service remains open for new referrals. No permanent changes to the service would be made without formal consultation with customers, carers and relatives.

At this time, we are not actively reviewing the Townsend Day Centre service. However, if you have ideas for the future day offer, please email
