Pathways to Opportunities provides support for adults with learning disabilities, autism, complex needs and chaotic lifestyles. We provide a quality service for adults aged 18+ within the borough of Oldham. Person centred planning and reviews are something that will be done on a regular basis to ensure we maximise the full potential of the people we support. Pathways to Opportunities provides support workers who are trained to the highest standards, and are dedicated to providing excellent care.

Pathways to Opportunities consists of 3 branches:
  • Day Service
  • Outreach Support
  • Care at Home

Personal Care

Helping with activities of daily living such as providing care around personal hygiene, dressing, shaving, washing, etc.

Domestic Care

Helping with household tasks such as meal preperation, house work, shopping etc. We encourage your independance whilst taking some of the strain of keeping on top of day-to-day living.

Medication Administration

Pathways will administer medication or prompt you to take your medication. Our staff are fully trained in administration of medication and we ensure all our paperwork is up to date and reviewed.

Sleep-ins and Emergency support

24 hour support from a carer living in your home, at short notice if necessary.

Outreach Support

Outreach Support is where our staff come to pick you up, and take you out and about within the local and extended community, to participate in various activities, advance any interest or hobbies you may have, or simply to accompany you to any appointments or do your weekly food shopping.

Most of our staff have cars available, or are more than happy to accompany you on public transport.

We encourage our outreach service users to go swimming, participate in gym/class activities, visit museums/points of interest, walk in local parks, etc.

Day Service

Our Day Service is located in the heart of the community in Chadderton, just behind the Town Hall. We open from 9am-3.30pm Monday to Friday, and 12pm-5pm on Saturdays and Sundays (These times can be flexible in accordance with your care package to best suit your needs – we can offer a bespoke service combining Day Service/1:1 support).

Bikes for All

Adapted bikes in an indoor and outdoor setting, which can build on your motor skills and mobility

Music Therapy

At Pathways, we are firm believers that ‘music is the key to our soul’. We have a fantastic amp and disco light system which provides endless hours of karaoke, dancing and entertainment for those who enjoy music. We also love to listen to music on the radio and encourage the people we support to request their favourite songs to listen to


We encourage our service users who are able to do so, to visit the local swimming baths as often as possible.


We all love a game of Bowling at the local Bowling alley! – How many strikes can you get?

Sensory Room

We have created our own bespoke sensory room to meet the needs of the people we support, who have autism and sensory needs. The Sensory Room is a fantastic place to relax, take in the sounds, lights and fibre optics and is a safe space for everyone who wishes to utilise it

Zumba Fitness

Our fully qualified Zumba instructor does a weekly class on a Tuesday. This will get your blood pumping and is guarenteed to make you smile!

Relaxation and Pamper sessions

We have foot-spa’s, creams, relaxing music and gentle hands which will ensure you are fully de-stressed. We also have makeup, nail varnish and encourage you to bring in your own toiletries for a little ‘spruce up’ to make you feel wonderful before you go home.


We love to party at Pathways to opportunities, and we have so much fun hosting Christmas, Summer and Halloween parties throughout the year. We’re also partial to having fancy dress competitions if you are up for a challenge.

Arts and Crafts

We provide paints, pencils, paper and other materials to bring out the creative side in you. We particularly enjoy making crafts around special occasions such as Birthdays, Easter, Christmas and any other holiday we can celebrate!
