We organise many clubs and activities across all age groups so that everyone can get a chance to participate, meet new friends and improve their skills.

Sports Group

Monday 5.45pm – 7.45pm

We love sport. That’s why our sports group covers all manner of disciplines, from football to basketball, cricket to netball. You name it, we play it. What better way to keep fit than with all your friends, with excellent volunteers on hand to guide and teach you new skills. We even have access to a climbing wall!


Monday 7.00pm – 9.00pm

Our local Gateway club has been promoting independence within the community since 1964. Like Club 7, Gateway offers our clients an excellent opportunity to interact with others, taking part in a wide range of activities and regular outings put on by amazing volunteers. The group regularly meets at a local social club where you can enjoy a drink and a chat over a game of darts or pool, and special nights including karaoke.

The Awesome IT Crowd

Tuesdays and Thursdays 6.15pm - 8.15pm

The Awesome IT Crowd offers our clients the chance to learn many new skills, from basic IT tasks like navigating your way around a computer all the way through to creating presentations. 

With activities tailored to suit the individual, ensuring that our members get the most from each class, this really is a fantastic way to learn.


Wednesday 11.00am – 11.45am

Everyone loves to dance. You can even get fit through doing it! In our fun, vibrant and popular Zumba session, in partnership with Zumba fitness, you will be learning dance routines, interacting with others and improving your fitness through a qualified instructor who tailors each session to meet the needs of those attending.

Art Group

Friday 10.00am – 12.00pm

Brilliant Drama Group
