Portsmouth Day Opportunities

Our Portsmouth Day Opportunities are based at two sites in South and Central East Portsmouth.

We are open from 9am - 4pm Monday to Friday.

The buildings here are only used as a base, as we access community resources as much as possible. All of the activities are aimed at improving health and independence.
