Coffee Club is a group for adults with a learning disability, which meets every other Monday 11am – 1pm. Activities (such as gardening, craft, drama, relaxation, outings and visits) are decided on by the group and take place both at our centre on Alexandra Road and within the community.

We are looking for reliable, friendly, proactive and approachable volunteers to promote independence whilst helping empower and support individuals to enjoy these activities.
