Our Out and About service
Our friendly Out and About service is here to help people with learning disabilities join in with local events and activities in the evening and at weekends.
We match individuals with a fully-trained support worker who shares similar interests and who we think the person will get on with socially.
Customers then decide how many hours of support they want, and if they need transport to get to and from activities. This forms a ‘package’ which can be used to choose from activities, either as part of a group or individually with help from a support worker. Individuals can pick from our monthly brochure, which we will send to our members. We also arrange events ourselves if that’s what people want.
Among our most popular activities are:
- Bowling; fun for all ages and abilities on a Sunday morning
- Cooking classes - fortnightly cooking activities led by experienced staff
Become an Out and About member by paying a one-off fee (£70 a year). This gives you priority booking on events, and a 5% discount each time you book!

"Out and About trips are brilliant. There are a wide range of activities to choose from, and they are well organised - the communication is first class. I do not worry about Emma when she is out with them. I know they will look after her and keep her safe. She has a lot of fun and it gives her independence away from her family."
