South Aberdeenshire Day Services

South Aberdeenshire Day Services activities and opportunities

We offer a person-centred programme of activities that is tailored to meet individual needs and choices.

Our staff use various communication systems to support people who have limited or no verbal communication or a hearing impairment. To make sure we get it right for you, we work closely with health care and social work teams.


We offer a wide range of ASDAN accredited courses which have been specifically designed for adults with learning disabilities, promoting independence and building links in the community. There is a choice of over 70 different subjects, ranging from cooking to volunteering. All of which are person-centred and evidenced through photography and video in a portfolio.

We are registered as a Centre of Excellence for our ASDAN work.


All our activities are focused on what you want to achieve. They promote:

  • wellbeing
  • choice
  • mobility
  • fitness
  • relationships
  • self-advocacy
  • confidence building
  • social skills
  • empowerment

We offer sensory and wellbeing support, and have a well equipped multi-sensory department at Forest View.


We lead on several community schemes, including:

  • Books have legs - a book pick up and delivery service working with the library
  • Shopping Buddies - a delivery service for people who need help to get their shopping
  • Geocaching - an outdoor fun treasure hunting activity in the community
