Daybreak Coundon

We are a day service provider, working in partnership with service users, families and carers across the North East to support people with learning disabilities and complex needs to lead independent, socially inclusive, happy, healthy lives.

To make this happen we provide varied and flexible life skills training, supported volunteering and work opportunities, sports, leisure and cultural activities and accredited and non accredited courses, both in-house and within local communities. 

Based in the North East region we operate three centres:

  • Coundon Hub  13 Tees Walk Coundon ,Bishop Auckland DL14 8JZ
  • Acomb near Hexham
  • Cowgate Community Centre,Houghton Ave,Cowgate ,Newcastle Upon Tyne  NE5 3UT

At each centre we offer a wide variety of activities with the aim of equipping our service users with the skills needed to take control of their own lives. This includes:

  • independent life skills opportunities
  • citizenship and advocacy
  • social enterprise activities
  • recreational and social activities
  • training workshops
  • independent travel training
  • IT and digital multimedia
  • horticulture and land management
  • supported volunteering and employment opportunities
  • service user representation
  • community presence and participation

Our staff are highly skilled, motivated and dedicated to providing the best quality service for our service users, using a person centred approach. By being person centred, we listen to each person to find out what is important to them and help them to make decisions about their lives and find a way of turning their individual ideas and dreams into reality.

We provide daily transport to each of our centres using our own minibus service for those who cannot access our centres independently.

A free taster day can be arranged to sample the service. For further information regarding our centre, activities, travel or taster days please contact us
