We help and enable adults with learning disabilities to unlock their full potential.

Within Ferring Country Centre, our customers are able to develop so many of the essential life skills they need, which empowers individuals and builds confidence and self-esteem. In general terms, the social skills are improved with the social interaction entailed in teamwork. Our customers are able to learn what is expected of them in the workplace. Furthermore, through this experience, individuals may be in a position to obtain voluntary or paid work in the community.

We also place a high premium on supporting the individual in a person-centred way. We are able to give customers a varied choice of where they undertake their work skills. We also attach a great deal of importance to individual happiness and enjoyment when they come to Ferring Country Centre - for customers to be content and self-fulfilled is essential.
