John Whites Golf Centre, Bedford Road, Rushden, Northants. NN10 0SA

We offer a broad range of practical, educational and fun activities so that everyone who comes along, regardless of reading and writing skills, can take part in all that we do on an equal level.

That said, we do include some numeracy and letters; such as shopping for lunchtime cookery ingredients, thus learning how to handle and understand money, and learning about ‘Time’ and how to understand a clock

Charades and mime are very popular, which we do by speech and also in Makaton sign language.


The management at John Whites have kindly given us a 60ft plot, which has been developed into raised bed gardens, on which we grow our own flowers and vegetables. for those who like perfumed and sensory gardens

The patio makes an ideal spot for lunch on a nice summers day!

As we are based on a golf course, we have excellent sports facilities, including a driving range and a Green Bowling field

We have the opportunity to use a Scout Training Centre which offers many outdoor activities including archery, a climbing wall, or use of their wonderful barbeque area.


All our clients love music, so we have a very good music group. Two of our carers are excellent musicians and they spend at least 3 sessions a week with guitars, xylophone, drums, tambourines etc. which are enjoyed by everyone
