Enriching Lives in the Community
Winslow Activity Club is a charity offering activities for adults with physical / learning disabilities and autism, including massage, music, art and sensory projects one morning a week, in a relaxed and caring environment. We encourage everyone to choose for themselves what they wish to do, and to participate “hands on”, often with the support of their carers,
Who comes to our sessions? Our clients live in the Aylesbury Vale District and all have disabilities. Many of them may struggle to access other community activity and social groups, and they usually come with carers to help them.
How do we enrich people’s lives? Our clients benefit physically from massage sessions, which also help reduce anxiety and tension. They also enjoy interacting and communicating through music, sensory experiences and creative projects, which is especially liberating for those who do not use speech. The social aspect of the group is also very important for both clients and carers as they share refreshments together.
When do we meet? On Friday mornings, generally during school term time (although we do not break for half term) from 10am to 12.30pm. We usually take a break from mid July to the beginning of September.
Where do we meet? We will be opening again on 14 September 2018 at our new location, Southcourt Baptist Church, 40 Penn Road, Aylesbury, HP21 8HW, as a result of the closure of the Winslow Centre and Youth Club for redevelopment.
“We like supporting people coming to this group because we know it is welcoming, friendly and safe, which allows the clients to meet their friends from other group homes, to try activities like arts and crafts, and we especially like the love music once a month.”
