The John Graham Centre


The John Graham Centre commenced in 2004 and is a Day Service for adults who have a learning disability. The Centre is based on a small farm in Blean, just outside the Cathedral City of Canterbury, it is a family run business offering both indoor and outdoor activities.

From very small beginnings 14 years ago and with an abundance of enthusiasm plus a clear vision, the Centre has developed into the forward looking stimulating and motivating service that it is today, enabling adults with a learning disability to learn and achieve together, to be happy and for each person to be able to develop to their maximum potential.



We give our students the amazing opportunity to work closely with the animals to develop a valuable and rewarding bond. They get involved in planting and growing crops including flowers and vegetables, and planting up patio pots and hanging baskets.

Music sets us free – it takes us out of ourselves and encourages us to relax.
