Welcome to Ace Activities

If you are looking for enjoyable leisure activities or training programmes in Epping Forest for over 18’s with learning disabilities and mental health issues, you’ve come to the right place.

Our experienced team provides a range of competitively-priced sessions and courses in a friendly and supportive environment that helps participants discover and fulfil their potential, boosting their confidence and self-esteem.

Our programmes are tailored to your needs

We tailor our activities to individual needs. Our aim is to give everyone who comes to us the opportunity to do something they really enjoy. For some, this means developing life skills and making positive progress towards meaningful goals and, where appropriate, pathways that can lead to volunteering or employment. Others come to explore new pastimes in a supportive and friendly environment.

You’ll find there’s plenty of activities to choose from. We offer courses in gardening, singing, art, cookery and upcycling. We also run sports and social sessions too. You’ll find more information on our Activities and Training page.

Where possible, we offer transport to and from the home, to maximise the respite and peace of mind for carers and guardians.
