ForwardDay – Orchid Centre

Orchid Day Service is a specialist service and community opportunities provision based in Solihull, Birmingham, who provide support to individuals 18+ with learning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities and complex needs.

Orchid Day Service operates Monday to Saturday and provides a variety of support which is tailored around individual needs. After a needs assessment, we can provide support within a group, 1:1, or 2:1 level. Our teams are specialised in working with individuals with behaviours that challenge and are highly trained in Safety Intervention, which helps staff to recognise signs of anxiety and provide de-escalation in a therapeutic and supportive way.
