Group Activities

Social Involvement
We provide a range of social and leisure activities in a range of clubs serving various age-groups and interests. These are run throughout the year by skilled group leaders assisted by support staff and volunteers. Clubs for children are usually based at our centre, with older groups generally enjoying leisure and social time out in the community. These are supported significantly by charitable grants, fund raising and donations as well as user contributions.
