The Activity Centre has over 300 places a week, and people who attend can take part in a range of craft, recreational and social activities. Some of these activities are sociable and fun; others have practical benefits, like improving fitness or developing practical skills.

The Centre helps many people escape the isolation and restriction that their sight loss may have imposed.

Opening times are Monday to Friday, 10am to 3pm, and we transport most service users to and from the Centre. Everyone who comes along is assigned a key worker who works with them to create a tailor-made programme doing as little or as much as they like.

Activities on offer

We provide specialist equipment and support for a variety of activities. These include:

  • Arts and crafts, including, pottery, soft toy making and cane work
  • IT
  • Keep fit classes, including swimming and onsite gym

All these activities offer valuable opportunities to make friends and socially interact with people in similar circumstances. We also provide benefit advice, a chiropodist and hairdresser. For all age groups of visually impaired people.
