Who are we and what do we do?

We support people to access many activities both inside and throughout our community. We are aware of the need to be physically healthy so provide sporting opportunities through the week including swimming, football, cricket, bowling etc. We also have a focus on independent living skills so encourage people to people to develop their cooking and money skills.

Social relationships are key with the service we provide and by using group activities such as drama, art, film making and music, we help people develop and maintain friendships.

We welcome new challenges and ideas and are always keen to hear service users opinions.

We run Social evenings, outings and holidays to further expand our range of social and independence- building opportunities.
