Centre 81 provides two essential services for people who live in the borough of Great Yarmouth and the surrounding area. Both had to adapt dramatically when, in March 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic forced a national lockdown. However, we are open and both are operating safely within the current Covid-19 restrictions, to ensure the safety of all our members, staff and volunteers.
See NEWS for the latest information on our services during the current lockdown.
Skills and Activities Centre
If you are an adult with a disability, or look after someone with a disability, get in touch to discover how our ground-breaking service can help you or a loved one lead a fuller, more active life.
Whilst the service we provide has had to change our ethos of person-centred care, with the emphasis on ability has not. See how we have adapted, the safety protocols we have in place and what we are offering now.

Community Transport Service
We also operate a door-to-door Community Transport Service for the whole community. We have had to adapt to be Covid-19 safe but our fully accessible minibuses are still acting as lifeline for people. Anyone can use our buses in the Borough who cannot access ordinary public transport and wants to stay connected with their local community. You do not have to have a disability.
We are not a taxi service or a bus service. We are something different. See the unique truly affordable services we are now offering both old and new members.

Centre 81 is a registered charity that employs professionally trained facilitation staff and drivers to help people live their lives to the full and have fun in the process.
Our members choose what activities they wish to take part in and often help to organise these.
