Hub

Our rehabilitation hubs in Chesterton and Peterborough are a place to work, learn, explore and enjoy.

We offer a range of facilities and sessions, run by skilled rehabilitation workers, which are designed to help people meet their goals whatever they may be.

Our sessions are delivered in groups and our clients are involved in the design and delivery of all of our programmes.

Each individual will have an assessment to identify personal needs and goals. Whether these goals are to get out and meet more people, increase confidence, develop skills or improve physical functioning, our programmes can help.
