Centre for Independent Living

The Centre for Independent Living is a day service to support adults with learning disabilities.

We offer opportunities for people to gain a more independent lifestyle. This is done through activities and by accessing services in and around the town of Bedford.

The staff team consists of Senior Day Care Officers, Day Care Officers and Community Facilitators.

The Centre for Independent Living is a base close to the town centre of Bedford and is accessible from Bedford bus station.
