About MCH

We are a day opportunities service for adults with a learning and/or physical disability, we are in the Wheal Northey area of St Austell, offering a warm and friendly environment to all who use our service. Mid Cornwall Hub (MCH) operates from a ground floor building that is wheelchair-friendly and fully accessible to all.

We have an outdoor area where service users are able to play football, meet and participate with friends and peers, during the warmer weather we have outdoor BBQ's and group gatherings for lunch. We offer a safe environment to meet the needs of our attendees. Our dedicated team are highly skilled and passionate about the person-centred support they give to all those that attend.

Our fully accessible facilities and core hours of service are 9.30am – 4pm, Monday to Friday. We often open out of core hours for events.

We engage and promote a strengths based perspective, based on the elucidate strengths of all individuals and the importance of the integration within their communities.
We envisage to embed a strengths based approach in all that we do. Applying this practice enables the individual to strengthen themselves to be resilient in their day-to-day life whether this is at MCH or out and about in their community. MCH offers opportunities for people with a learning disability to develop not only their independence/social skills through meaningful activities within the centre but also within their community. We have access to inhouse transport to enable groups of individuals opportunities to go out and about further afield and explore other communities and opportunities within those districts.

Our key principles and core values are promoting the independence of each and every person and to enable choice with positive outcomes whilst ensuring people remain safe and well. We do this through inclusion and engaging all individuals through their own goals and aspirations. MCH offer open discussions by communicating in their preferred method, we do this through various modes of communication which could be through verbal prompts, sign language including Makaton and understanding body language to conclude what message the person is trying to convey. We feel it is important to understand and listen to the needs of those we support. As a team we are adamant that each and every person has a voice and this should be used to their advantage, if we need to support them with this then we will in order for them to be listened to.
