The Ark Day Service
The Ark Day Service provides a day service to disabled adults living in Nottingham and the surrounding areas.
What we provide is different for each customer, based on their needs and wishes. Customers can be supported to learn and develop skills in:
- Caring for themselves
- Living independently
- Building and maintaining relationships with friends and family
- Accessing services, resources and activities in the community
We aim to provide you with the support and opportunities you need to lead a fulfilling lifestyle by offering a range of services which are tailored to your needs. You’ll be in control of your support and enabled to make choices and develop your independence. We’ll work alongside you, and the other people in your life, to make this happen. Together, we’ll develop a support plan around the things you want to do, with a focus on what you’d like to achieve.
Our services provide high quality, person centred support to disabled adults. We train our staff thoroughly to provide a high quality tailored and flexible support for people with a range of physical disabilities, learning disabilities and complex health needs.
At The Ark Day Service, we give disabled adults the opportunity to try a full range of indoor and outdoor leisure and social activities, both individually and as part of a group. This has included:
- arts and crafts
- sensory story bags and rebound therapy
- sessions on computing, cooking and music
- visits to the cinema, bowling, Twycross Zoo, Wollaton Hall and much more
Through our flexible support you’ll gain new skills, confidence and independence. It’s your choice what you’ll do.
The Ark Day Service is located within Nottingham. We have recently moved to a purpose adapted building, with the use of tracking, fixed and mobile hoists.
The service has a music room, clinical room, sensory room, relaxation room and art room along with an accessible communal kitchen and dining area. There is also a large, open plan communal area that customers may use to socialise, or join in with sessional and group activities.
There are also three accessible and well adapted bathrooms with ceiling track hoists.

If would like to discuss making a referral, please contact us through the Get in Touch section on this page.
We will speak to you and, with your agreement, others that support you such as your family or other care providers. Following agreement about the suitability of placement, we will develop an individual support plan with you which will outline your communication preferences, lifestyle choices and wishes and health and wellbeing needs. We allow every customer to undertake a three-month trial period so you can experience the service. At the end of the trial period we will hold a review and, if applicable, formally agree the support with the customer, their representative and their sponsoring authority.
