Link Leisure - helping those with learning disabilities in Woking & Surrey Heath

Link Leisure said...

Link Leisure is a local charity covering the areas of Woking and Surrey Heath. We provide social and sporting activities for both children and adults with a wide variety of learning disabilities including Autism, Down’s syndrome, and Developmental Global Delay.

We aim to provide exciting and individual activities and experiences to all of our 500 service users. Activities that we currently provide include playschemes, residential trips, swimming clubs, garden projects, sports clubs, a choir and trips into the local community. All of our groups run throughout the year for our service users. We even hold a nightclub event entitled “Mayhem” for our over 18’s. This event attracts over 250 disabled adults from across the county and our oldest attendee is 75 years old!

Our resident DJ and some of the support staff also having learning disabilities. The aim of this event is to give these people the same opportunities as other people their own age whilst being in a safe and controlled environment.

The main aim of the charity is to create independence and alleviate social isolation for these disabled people and above all enabling them to have fun in a safe and stimulating environment.

We are always looking to expand and increase our services for our service users so your support would be vital in enabling us to reach more disabled people living across Woking and Surrey Heath.
