VIEW INTRO
From the beginning, our working philosophy at Acorn has been that people with a learning disability are people first, and their disability is second, with the right to lead as full and fulfilling a life as possible. Each person, whatever their disability, is given every opportunity for self development, combined with as much or as little support as they need.

At Acorn we aim to develop the whole person. Along with everyday life skills, staff work with the residents to improve their communication and social skills. Therapies such as relaxation, drama, dance, music and a well equipped multi-sensory room are used to help residents experiencing emotional or behavioural difficulties. We offer lively and popular creative craft, art therapy, needlecraft and weaving. Many residents have discovered fulfilling new talents. Our Creative Craft & Therapeutic Centre is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. For all enquiries please contact or call the Creative Craft Centre on 01206 394124.

Our residents and tenants work in our busy Coffee Shop, help with the gardening, work in the onsite Charity Shop and assist with our office work. Tenants also enjoy working in the local community.
It was a proud day last year for us all when we won best stand at The Tendring Show, we had last won 10 years prior so it was a great way to celebrate our 40th Anniversary.

Our Christmas Panto goes from strength to strength gaining larger audiences. It has a local following. In 2013 we presented Jack in the Beanstalk. Our 2015 production was "1914 and the birds began to sing" Keep an eye on our website and facebook for future production details.
