Business growth facilitates move for Great Yarmouth day care centre

A Great Yarmouth day care centre, which provides services for adults with learning disabilities, is preparing to expand their premises to support their growing team of staff and service users.

Iceni Care has been based on the town’s Queen’s Road since it opened in 2011 and now, with 45 staff across the business, providing 75 services, they will be expanding into the nearby St James Health and Resource Centre, managed by enterprise agency, Nwes.

Director of Iceni Care, Mandy Davy, is looking forward to the move and the benefits that their additional home will bring to the adults they support.

“At Iceni Care we have a large team of experienced and passionate support workers providing a number of services, support and opportunities to all the users of the Iceni Care day care centre.  The time has arrived where we have simply outgrown our current base.”  Mrs Davy explains.

Currently delivering services which include social evenings, gardening projects, and respite, Mrs Davy says that the way support is delivered is changing.  With the Government introducing new ways of working, the move to St James Health and Resource Centre will not only accommodate the growing team at Iceni Care, but it will offer opportunities to learn work skills and support transition between services.  They will still be operating from their current offices.

Mrs Davy continues.

“The space at St James is ideal for us.  A huge bonus is the onsite café, which will provide the adults we support with opportunities to develop work skills by making tea, coffee etc for our visitors.

“The extra space available will support the transition work that we are carrying out with Further Education colleges, and we are even able to allocate some space to Volunteering Matters to help their work.  It’s an exciting time for us.”

“St James offers us a lot of space and potential to develop and expand. The opportunity has come at the perfect time for us.” 

Mandy Davy, Iceni Care

Mandy and her fellow Directors of Iceni Care, husband Glenn Davy, and Sandra and Gary Luckhurst, welcome the opportunity to continue the connection and to develop their relationship with Nwes, which supports start-ups and business growth.  Iceni Care is currently based in a building previously occupied by Nwes and will continue that association when they expand into St James Health and Resource Centre, with the planned opening on 4 September.

Emily Farmer, Relationship Manager for Nwes says.

“St James Health and Resource Centre is a unique building with onsite facilities and flexible tenancy terms to support and meet tenants’ business needs.”

Emily continues.

“We are delighted that the building and support from Nwes offers Iceni Care opportunities for development and business growth, which ultimately will benefit local adults with learning disabilities and their families.”

Mrs Davy concludes.

“St James offers us a lot of space and potential to develop and expand. The opportunity has come at the perfect time for us.”
