Social Clubs

Our social clubs give people with learning disability opportunities to enjoy mainstream activities and have a social life like everyone else.  We support people in social groups to choose what they would like to do and then offer the relevant levels of support to plan and organise them, and then support people at the activity or event. The types of activities that the groups have chosen and organised in the past include: bowling, theatre, nightclubs, dining out, cine-racing and Indoor cricket.  You can find out more about our befriending service by contacting Jane Menzies.
