What do we do at Adapt (NE)?

Adapt (NE) is a registered charity, a company limited by guarantee and a social enterprise which is managed by a Trustee Board of volunteers with a wide range of areas of expertise. We are a community-based organisation providing services to people in North East England with the aim of  promoting an inclusive society.

We aim to improve the quality of life of disabled people who have sensory, physical and learning disabilities or mental health problems; also people who are disadvantaged in being able to access services because they live in a rural location.

To become more self-reliant, we have developed a range of services, including provision of an enterprise hub and community cafe, whilst still holding on to our primary aims.

By using our services, other organisations are assured of quality attention whilst at the same time as helping us in our work.

NEW Cafe @ Burn Lane Community Cafe

Our new community cafe, Cafe @ Burn Lane, really is a hub for everyone in the community, with fully accessible cafe and patio area, internet cafe and resource centre. We have a Changing Places accessible toilet which is a facility for anyone who needs it on their visit to, or journey through Hexham.

The internet area has computers installed ready for use; this is an ideal place for people to complete job applications, forms and any other online paperwork.

Both the cafe and resource room can be hired for private use – the cafe out of opening hours and the resource room at any time, for meetings, parties and get togethers of any kind.

The cafe is open from 9.00am – 3.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Come and say hello and let us know what you think!
