The society works in partnership with Trinity Family Centre to provide day activities for adults with learning disabilities.
On Wednesdays, we provide a weekly sports and games session and on Fridays a weekly internet cafe and arts and craft session. On both days the sessions run from 9.30am to 12pm.
***Please note, the Friday sessions are currently full so any new enquiries please contact Southend Mencap or Trinity Family Centre to ask to be put on the waiting list***
Sessions cost £5 per person for the half day, which includes refreshments, and then the all day Wednesday sessions during the holidays cost £12 although students can choose to attend either the morning or afternoon if they so wish. The activities are based at The Trinity Church, Argyll Road, Westcliff in their fully accessible premises that caters for those with mobility issues and in wheelchairs as well as there is both a lift and wheelchair gate to allow anyone to access the sessions.
The club is currently funded through our 3 year commissioning grant with Southend Borough Council, which runs until March 2018, and we are extremely grateful for their continued support thus allowing this much needed service to continue.
