Bristol’s premier facility for people with disabilities opened its doors to the public yesterday.

The Vassall Centre held its annual open day on Tuesday, July 26 for the Oldbury Court community to look at the variety of projects on site. This was the twelfth open day of its kind from the centre which has been offering space for community projects for more than 25 years.

The centre currently has 23 projects based on site, all offering support for people with different complex needs.

The open day saw all the various organisations at the centre showcasing their work. Organisations such as PROPs, which work with adults with learning difficulties, Cerebral Palsy Plus, the Centre for the Deaf, and Mencap.

Offering opportunities to people with disabilities is at the core of what the Vassall Centre do. The reception staff have taken on adults with learning difficulties, the cafe is run by Brandon Trust, and many of the projects present have taken on clients and supported them, some into full employment.
