Facilities: The Centre is bright, warm and comfortable. It provides free creative activities for the benefit and enjoyment of physically disabled people in and around Uttlesford.

Users’ twice-weekly visits to the Centre foster important social network opportunities for many individuals who would otherwise be confined at home with only daytime television for company.

Our range of activities, which include chair caning, knitting, quilting, basket making, sewing and other crafts, is tailored to suit the abilities and mood of each person. In addition to the recreational activities on offer, there are various lunches and outings throughout the year. 

The Centre is open on Mondays and Thursdays, 9am to 2.30pm, and we  welcome enquiries from or on behalf of any physically disabled persons who could benefit from attending the Centre. We work in collaboration with Uttlesford Community Travel to ensure the Centre is accessible to all.
