What Is It?

Our social groups aim to be inclusive – suitable for young adults both with and without disabilities. They are designed around activities which help build confidence and long lasting friendships, reduce feelings of isolation and encourage socialising.

Disco & Dance

We hold 5 yearly discos at the Redwell Centre, Matson. These discos unite all four groups at one event, giving them the opportunity to meet and socialise with a wider range of people.
