We have a diverse programme of supported and affordable outings and activities during the Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays. There are also addtional one-off events planned throughout the year. During term times the Tuesday Clubnight is a chance to relax with friends, learn new skills and enjoy different experiences in a friendly, safe and secure environment. The weekly activities include bingo, arts and crafts, bowling, discos and physical training as well as guest presenters. The Dance Team meet on Mondays with a professional dance teacher and train to take part in regular shows locally. During the summer a 4 week programme is arranged including a residential break where members can experience independent living whilst giving their parents and carers a valuable respite break. Members are supported by a team of experienced staff and volunteers, there are always qualified first aiders present and everyone has an enhanced DBS check. Our website is regularly updated and our brochures are circulated to schools, colleges, sheltered accommodation, social workers and care agencies, as well as family and friends.
