Fraserburgh Day Opportunities
Fraserburgh Day Opportunities provides day service opportunities for adults with disabilities living in Fraserburgh and surrounding areas. The service provides the opportunity for personal development in the areas of social, physical and mental wellbeing. We use group and vocational activities to help with self-advocacy, confidence building, assertiveness and other social skills experiences.
We can help you access, and take part in, activities that support involvement and building networks and relationships. We recognise the importance of giving you opportunities that provide new learning experiences.
We can help you with leisure and recreational activities, life skills, skills development and training, further education and therapeutic activities.
Our building based service is suitable for adults with profound and multiple disabilities, as well as those with complex needs. It is run from Robertson Road Resource Centre (RRRC).
Our day service programme is community based, accessing a range of facilities. You don't have to come to RRRC to get a service. Some people choose to, or are assessed to use, services on an outreach basis only. We can provide home or community based support, including care and help with your health, social, communication and therapeutic needs.

We also have a reverse inclusion strategy, inviting the local community to take part in specific daytime activities. These include bingo on a Tuesday afternoon, fortnightly socials with the Cinema Club, and monthly soup and sweet lunches. Independent groups also use RRRC during the day, in evenings and on weekends.

If you are eating at RRRC you can choose from the menu, which changes daily. You can tell your keyworker your preferences or dietary needs and they will help you make the necessary arrangements. Appropriate lunch arrangements are made when groups are in the community.
Lunch is served in the dining hall. You can eat your own packed lunch there. You can eat meals and packed lunches in other areas by prior agreement.
Some activities give you the opportunity to make, or go out and have, lunch in the local community. Lunch times are more variable for these activities, but will be in the group programme.
The Coffee Bar is open 9:30am to 10:30am and 12:45pm to 1:30pm, Monday to Friday.
The Dining Kitchen is open 12 noon to 12:45pm, Monday to Friday.
Every two months we hold meetings to discuss a variety of topics about RRRC and decisions on how the Amenity Fund should be spent. The Amenity Fund is a sum of money held in a bank account, usually accumulated from donations to RRRC. People using the day service can take part in these meetings and add items for discussion on the agenda.
Working Together (participation strategy group)
This group coordinates the development of a “Working Together” action plan for the day service and community projects. Members include representatives from various groups and partners linked to our Buchan Day Opportunities. Members include people using the service, parents and carers, staff, volunteers, and interagency organisations.
Members gather information for the action plan for their named groups. So parents gather information from other parents and carers and take it back to the meetings.
The group meets every three months to gather any updated information about progress in the action plan.
