St Elizabeth's Day Activities and Social Enterprises provide people with a wide range of stimulating learning, leisure, social and vocational opportunities to meet their needs, interests and aspirations. These include physical activities such as horse-riding, trampolining, music, drama, arts and crafts, therapeutic multi-sensory experiences and the opportunity for clients to learn or further develop IT skills.
As well as enjoying day and evening/weekend activities on site, the Centre has a fleet of vehicles to enable residents to have regular access to facilities and events in the local community.
St Elizabeth's also has four Social Enterprises where residents (and College learners) can participate at a level that suits them. Ashvale and the Orchard Project offer experience in organic horticulture, growing and selling fruit, flowers and vegetables. The Drawing Room produces award winning ceramics, paintings and prints. The Jewellery Project makes and sells attractive jewellery in our own High Street shop/gallery in Bishops Stortford. Each social enterprise offers incentive payments to those who attend and at Ashvale the opportunity to work towards a City & Guilds qualification.
Our popular day activities and social enterprises are also available to people who are living in the community who wish to participate as day clients or those who are visiting St Elizabeth’s for respite care.
