Social Activity Programmes 

Here is a range of activities, which we are able to facilitate and offer to the community.  Our sessions provide opportunities for people to enjoy a range of activities, which can benefit their quality of life, physical and emotional wellbeing, and help them to feel more socially connected through the positive experiences they get to enjoy participating in our social activity programmes.

We also provide links to our network of partner and community organisations that can also assist them to live a better life.
