About The Hamlet

The Hamlet is a provision for young adults with SEND aged 19 – 25 based in the beautiful setting of the Three Sisters Recreational Park. Our aim is to support the Trainees to develop their skills and confidence in a nurturing environment to allow them to take the next steps into their future. To do this, we offer a range of exciting opportunities for the Trainees including on site vocations, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and offsite work placements.

At the Hamlet you will find the Nest Café, Lakeside Printing, three retail outlets, a florist and a craft center. These are all run by our Trainees and are open to the public Monday – Friday.
