Our mission, regardless of ability, disability, social and economic status is to enable people to have access to and participate in a broad spectrum of educational and leisure opportunities. We strive to achieve a valued, instructive and unrestricted experience, incorporating personal development, self advocacy and social education. Our overall aim is to develop strategies and partnerships with the local community to initiate ways in which disadvantaged groups can become involved in the community at every level.
All Friends Community Hub offer opportunities for adults with learning and physical disabilities, both young and old, to participate in indoor and outdoor activities that can be both fun and educational. Established in 1997 we offer a wide range of holidays throughout the year there is something for all tastes and abilities. All activities ensure a fun experience in a safe environment.
More About us
We are totally non profit which means that any money we receive for our services goes back into the project for equipment or other things we need to run. This is how we can keep our costs for our sessions so low.
We are managed by a committee who oversees all our business, legal and financial matters as well as being the main point of contact for us. Our committee are involved in the project daily, so are totally involved and committed to this project. Our committee welcome any one interested in the project to become our members.
