Options Social Club is pleased to announce that due to a grant from the Great Aycliffe and Middridge Partnership (GAMP) it is now able to open weekly.
Options Social Club is managed by the Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP) and offers a safe and friendly environment for local disabled adults to socialise, make new friends, try new activities and give carers a break from their caring responsibilities.
Activities include pool, table tennis, Wii games, bowling, hydrotherapy pool usage, boxercise, new age kurling, computer and internet access, parties and discos.
The Club has been taking place fortnightly, so it with particular thanks to the Neighbourhood Budgets of the late Cllr Enid Paylor, Cllr Mike Dixon, and Cllr Joan Gray and former County Councillor Paul Gittins that people can now attend every week.
Danielle Barlow is a regular member of the Social Club and says “I enjoy the Social Club because it is good fun and the activities are good”
Danielle’s mum says “The Social Club has helped bring Danielle out of her shell, she absolutely loves it. If she is happy, we are happy. We also enjoy the respite we get while Danielle attends”
The Options Social club takes place at the Pioneering Care Centre in Newton Aycliffe on Thursdays from 6pm – 8pm and has a £2 fee.
PCP also manages Options, a day project for local disabled adults which aims to promote independence, choice, control and social inclusion to its participants. Activities include daily living skills, adult education sessions, confidence and self esteem building, healthy living workshops and community activities. There are also opportunities for residential activity weekends.
