Day services for people with disabilities

Day opportunities can help you do the things you enjoy, meet new people and learn new skills.  

Day opportunities are available if you:

  • are over 18
  • have a physical or learning disability that we know about
  • have care and support needs that we know about

You can access day opportunities by having a Care Act assessment.

If you need an assessment please ask us for help.

How much do day opportunities cost?

How much you pay for day services depends on your financial assessment.

If we don’t organise your care and support, you can still access Solihull Council’s day opportunities. You can start by organising to visit us..
