Day Opportunities, often known as Day Services, help people to live as independently as possible in the community through the use of buildings such as Day Centres and community-based support.
Most of these services help people to get involved in community activities with the support of paid care workers. This can either be in groups or as individuals.
In Coventry there is a range of Day Opportunities schemes run by both the Council and private companies. Some schemes can be accessed directly, but for some, people have to be eligible for social care.
The Employment Support Service (TESS) is part of the Council's Employment Team. TESS specialises in providing supported employment services for disabled adults and young people in Coventry, this includes people with learning disabilities, autism and people with severe and enduring mental ill health.
