About the Acorn Resource Centre

The Acorn Resource Centre in Hyson Green provides day services for people with physical and sensory impairments. The centre is part of the Mary Potter Centre on Gregory Boulevard.

During your first few weeks at the Acorn Resource Centre, we will work closely with you to assess your needs. We aim to support you to work towards your goals and to help you have as much independence as possible.

We will also maintain close links with your carers, and give support and advice where needed.

We provide an activity-based service with links to other agencies. We can put you in touch with other organisations that can help you. You are assigned a Keyworker, who will ensure that you get the most out of your attendance at the Acorn Resource Centre. If you have any problems or issues, please speak to your Keyworker.

How the Acorn Resource Centre can benefit you

The Centre aims to develop, maintain and prevent the loss of a person's independence by helping people to rebuild their confidence, increase socialisation and an overall improvement in their quality of life.

At the Acorn Resource Centre, our services are built around you. Everything from meals and transport to activities and leisure time is tailored to provide you with quality care and enjoyable experience.

Activities: We offer crafts, cookery, indoor and outdoor games, discussion groups, a sensory room, flower arranging, fun days out, boat trips and many more.

As our care is person-centred, we try to accommodate for requests made by citizens, for example, suggestions made for activities which they would like to take part in.

Transport: We can help with transport to and from the centre, for which there is a charge. There is car parking available for visitors to the centre.

Meals: You can have meals with us at the centre. We cater for a range of dietary needs. There is a small charge for meals.

Personal care: We provide personal care to those who require it, respectfully. All our staff are fully trained in this area of care.

Representative Groups: The Acorn Resource Centre has members' representative groups which meet regularly to discuss and input on issues in the centre and the community as well.


"Whilst at home I get very lonely. For me, Acorn helps me to meet people. I do activities, especially; drama, sewing, craft; and these give me a sense of achievement."

"I like the atmosphere; I like the company; the staff have always helped me. I like the company as I am treated as a person, as it should be."
