The opportunity to take part in our Extend Exercise programme to help keep active.
Access to a variety of activities including board games, dominoes, knitting & music.
A two course meal, which is also appropriate for diabetics.
Day trips and visits to other African Caribbean organisations and seaside destinations.
We also offer practical advice and support in relation to:
Benefits & Claims, Travel and Funeral Arrangements.
Charges apply for attendance, transport, meals and trips so please contact us for a full quote.
All our staff are enhanced DBS checked and fully qualified.
