TOPCATS Choices - Support for young people and adults with additional needs

Learning Disabilities Framework Provider

Framework provider of day, evening and weekend activities for people with learning disabilities and autism

General Details

Topcats offer support for young people and adults with additional needs from the age of 5 years to 30 years old based in Suffolk.

Topcats is a small, local charity based in Pakefield, Lowestoft. We are partly grant-funded by Activities Unlimited.

TOPCATS offers fun, friendship and the chance to build transferable life skills in an engaging and welcoming environment. Once a young person has joined Topcats, we ensure that we take time to get to know each individual and make sure they are at ease with a key worker who will support them to make their own choices.

As a team, it is our primary aim to help each individual develop their own social independence and life skills in order to reach their potential in a supported environment. In addition, we are able to supply young people with a vast range of exciting sensory, art, sport and music equipment, to help them build up their awareness of themselves and the world around them.

We offer a weekly 'Choices' day time group for people who are looking for alternative day care. This group is open to anyone aged 18 - 30yrs with any additional needs. We base all activities around the group and with a high staff ratio we are able to offer one to one and two to one support and mentoring. Our activities are focused on community access and life skills within a safe environment.

You can pop into see us at our premises on Morton Road; the staff are more than happy to meet you and show you around! Alternatively, you can email Anne Marie to discuss things further.
