Tuesday Club takes place every fortnight at the Portcullis Club in Wallingford between 7pm and 9pm. Memberships are available for £10 per year at the Portcullis Club and each session costs £3.
We are still trying out new activities and welcome suggestions from the people we support and staff members to ensure we are offering an event evening that gives opportunities to develop new skills as well as offering a choice of activities to the people we support.
The Tuesday club aims to
• encourage the development of social and communication skills in a relaxed environment
• encourage PWS to make choices (in relation to their ability and subject of choice)
• offer a choice of interesting and stimulating activities for PWS to try that have been suggested /chosen by themselves
• allow /encourage PWS to express themselves through creative activities to build on self confidence and raise self esteem
