Additional information:

Grundy Day Centre, which was opened in 1973, stands in its own fenced grounds and is located just outside the centre of Bury in a residential area with playing fields and open spaces to the front and back of the building. The building is a single story purpose built structure on one level so that it has no steps throughout to allow for easy access and movement around the centre. In 2003 the outside of the building underwent a comprehensive refurbishment. The centre is furnished and decorated in a friendly and cosy manner in order to make service user feel at home.

A car parking area is provided for service users who wish to use their own means of transport and there is a canopy covered entrance area for the comfort of service users arriving at the centre. There are also outside seating areas, landscaped areas and flat walking paths throughout the grounds.

Automatic entrance doors allowing immediate exit from the building but controlled entrance into the building provide total security and freedom from fear for the service users at the centre.
