Introduction

Organisation Name
Age UK South Gloucestershire - Activity Day Clubs
Description

The Activity Day Club service offers door-to-door accompanied transport to a choice of four weekly clubs in two locations serving much of South Gloucestershire.

A typical day contains opportunities for a variety of fun and activities such as singing and playing percussion instruments, quizzes, exercises to music, art & craft, bingo, Nintendo Wii games, knitting, memory boxes, entertainment and occasional outings as well as times of quieter conversation and one-to-one support. A two course lunch and refreshments are also provided.

Singing is a favourite

We will be happy to discuss you attending a 'taster session' so you can experience the service and meet other service users and staff team. Half day packages can also be booked (subject to availability) and a reduced rate applies if no transport is required.
