Activities and social opportunities

  • A teatime service providing a two-course meal and supervised activities as a bridge between day services and evening activities so that service users can remain more independent and parents/carers have longer respite 
  •  Evening activities such as Gateway Club, a drama group and discos, which provide social opportunities for adult service users to meet up with friends
  •  Advice and support for parents/carers, such as a weekly parents’ group, regular coffee mornings/enjoyable fundraising events, and signposting to other services and organisations, including advocacy groups
