WHERE:

WalkMyWay

WalkMyWay was created during COVID19. With services and activities coming to a sudden holt, it was for us to think how we could bring them to you. WalkMyWay was initially a service for long cane users only due to social distancing but with these rules changing regularly and with access to PPE we can now offer this to more people. 

If you find you cannot make the Walthew Walkers Group for any reason, then this offers a guided/supported walk from your own home to a green space or park close by, stop for a sit and chat half way through if you like and then walk back home. It has received great feedback with service users mentioning benefits to both their physical and mental health.

Penpals

We have teamed up with a local primary school with the aim of bringing our community together and overcoming isolation. Please get in touch if either yourself or someone you know with a sensory loss may be interested.

Tech Group

Tech Group is a monthly group supported by volunteers and helps service users to make the most of assistive technology.  They are able to share knowledge, experience and ideas, receive help getting devices properly set up and also enjoy the attendance of regular product providers giving them the chance to try out different technology first hand.  Refreshments and available. 

This is a friendly and welcoming group so if you have any tech questions, queries or are interested in general please come along and try it out!  We also have access to our fully equipped Resource Centre to be able to demonstrate products in there also.

WHEN:

The second Thursday of every month 12:30pm – 3:30pm

Tech 1-2-1
