Aims of the project

The aim of this project is to enable people with learning disabilities to be more active in their local community and support each other to learn new skills and try new things.

It is about building confidence in people through meeting up with, and getting to know, other people with similar interests.

The project consists of a series of learning and leisure activities which are run by Peer Supporters from Croydon People First.
