Mill Race Community Support Service provides a range of day activities to people over 18 with a learning disability and/or autism. The service is well established within the local community and is dedicated to helping people improve their wellbeing and live independent lives.

The service aims to:

  • Provide a safe, caring, and friendly place for people with a learning disability and/or autism to come together
  • Give people with a learning disability and/or autism the opportunity take part in fun activities and learn new skills

How it works

We provide a wide range of fun activities at Mill Race Community Support Service. Our expert team of trained staff and volunteers support service users to choose the right activity for them. To achieve this we use the Life Star tool, which helps find out more about each person’s ability and how we can best help.

We work closely with service users’ support plans and care staff to make sure the choices and activities we provide are in line with plan outcomes. These outcomes are reviewed regularly to ensure these remain accurate and relevant. The activities we provide include:

  • Games and sports
  • Music and dance sessions
  • Swimming
  • Cooking and living skills
  • Photography
  • Local walks

Who is the service for

The service is aimed at people with a learning disability and/or autism over the age of 18, living in the Wiltshire area. Unfortunately we are unable to support more complex needs and/or wheelchair users due to space restrictions. To find out if we can meet your needs specifically get in touch with us using the details below.

How to access the service

If you, or a friend, family member or a person you work with would like to join us at Mill Race Community Support Service get in touch using the details below.


If the customer likes the look of the service, he/she is invited to a half-day session to try the service out. This is free of charge. After this trial, if the customer decides he/she would like a placement at Mill Race, a referral is made to either their social worker or to County to find out about funding. Some customers/families manage their own finance packages and will self- fund this placement.
