Help Support Adults with Learning Disabilities by using our Facilities

Suitable for all abilities

Creative Craft centre

Opened in 2015 thanks to generous donations, the Creative Craft Centre offers an exciting array of activities.
Based on individuals needs these skill enhancing sessions are offered externally as well as internally.

Open Monday to Friday 9.30am to 3.30pm, the public are invited to come in and see for themselves how their financial support makes a difference and perhaps even buy a unique piece of artwork.
The Therapeutic Theatre area has been used for various shows over the years. If you have a group who may be interested in hiring this facility please get in contact.

Onsite Charity Shop

Open: Monday to Friday 11am to 3pm subject to volunteer availability. You are welcome to call the main reception to check opening times if you are planning a visit on a particular date/time.

This onsite Charity Shop, which is next to the Coffee Shop, is a welcome addition to our existing Charity Shop in Manningtree, both of which help us enhance our income through the sale of donated goods.

There is clothing, bric-a-brac, toys, games, puzzles, soft furnishing and much more all waiting for you to snap it up!

It is the perfect place for bargain hunting after an enjoyable lunch at the Coffee Shop.

Acorn Village welcomes everyone to come and enjoy delicious refreshments in The Walled Garden Cafe and help support adults with learning disabilities.

Sit and enjoy the wildlife and tranquil surroundings from inside the conservatory during the cold winter. 
On a sunny day enjoy relaxing outside enjoying a Coffee & Cake in the beautiful walled Garden.
