We provide day care services and leisure time activities for disabled adults in Northamptonshire.
We meet weekly to participate in activities, have fun and meet other people in a safe environment. We are a self help support group run by members and supported by carers. The activities we provide range from Quizzes and Bingo, Arts and Crafts and Gentle Exercise Facilities, Refreshments and Lunch. Each session is tailored around the abilities of attendees and specific calendar dates i.e. Christmas, Easter, Halloween and birthdays. Care is provided by the team to deliver individual care plans.Why the community needs us
We also help the local community by using local suppliers for various requirements; food purchases from local suppliers, we support the local community centre by meeting in the centre each week. We also purchase art and craft materials locally and occasionally we all go out for lunch to a local restaurant.Our impact on the community
The group provides key benefits by providing a sense of purpose, meeting with others with similar health conditions, we aim to reduce social isolation which in turn helps with mental and physical wellbeing. The activities we provide help improve skills and abilities, members are also able to participate in gentle exercise; which helps with joint and muscle movement and has cardiovascular benefits. Whilst at the group carers also receive respite relief giving them time to do other things at home
