WHAT DO WE DO AT OUR WEEKLY CLUB SESSIONS?
People with disabilities like nothing more than a night out with friends, in a safe and friendly environment, something most other people take for granted.
The activities on offer to our beneficiaries take part in an atmosphere of friendship, respect, support and camaraderie in a safe and welcoming environment, and are tailored to cater for the differing levels of abilities. Our weekly Club forms a vital part of their routine where they gain confidence, develop new skills and build new friendships while feeling supported. These skills can then be used to build better relationships and social interactions in their local community.
Our beneficiaries can also access advice from our volunteers on a range of subjects such as benefits, bereavement, medication, advocacy and the reading of letters (in confidence when necessary) at all times, both inside and outside the usual Club hours.
We run a very wide range of activities at the Club, including:
- Playing bingo
- Jigsaw puzzles
- Learning numeracy, literacy and computer skills
- Making cards and craft activities
- Playing pool
- Disco and dancing
We also have a Christmas Party in December and a Sports Day in July, as well as organising occasional day trips to local places of interest.
