Community groups, lunch clubs and drop in's

What does it do?

These are provided in community or other local venues, as well as the more traditional day centres. Catering for a broad range of cultural and ethnic needs, they provide an opportunity to meet friends and socialise and to take part in sport, exercise, arts and craft, music drama and outings. Many offer reasonably priced lunches or light snacks and some have information and advice drop ins.
