Our Out and About service
You may be busy during the day from Monday to Friday, but what about other times? In 2011, we set up the Out and About service to help people with learning disabilities join in with local events and activities in the evening and at weekends.
Join up, and you’ll be matched with a fully-trained support worker who shares similar interests and who we think you’ll get on with socially.
You then decide how many hours of support you want, and if you need transport to get to and from activities. This forms a ‘package’ you can use to do things you enjoy, either as part of a group or on your own with help from your support worker. You can pick from our monthly brochure, which we will send to you. 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
- Two Left Feet dance classes – learn different types of dance from a professional teacher on a weekday evening
- Cooking classes - fortnightly cooking activities led by experienced staff

"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."
