Jackie's Drop-In Centre is an award winning centre for adults with disabilities, we are currently based at St Micheals House, Norton Way South, Letchworth Garden City. We started with only 6 services users and now have over 200+ users thourough word of mouth with no direct advertising with users visiting our centre from all over Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
At Jackie's we offer a safe and relaxed enviroment where adults with disabilities of various ages can come and meet with friends new and old and particpate it various acivities such as arts and crafts, pool/snooker, gaming rooms, internet enabled computers, beauty treatments, day trips out, third party hate crime reporing hub and free courses throughout the year all for just a £1.50 entrance fee.
Due to the ever growing demand for our service we will be locating to a larger premises in October/November and the work needs to be completed by the end of Febuary 2015 running two buildings to try and cause minimum disruption to the service users as possible.
The new premises requires a full renovation to bring it to the standard where we can offer our much needed service this will include partition walls, electrical and plumbing work, fully functional one storey lift, flooring, additional toilets, kitchen, sensory room and full decor throughout.
With the move to a larger premises we aim to double our service and to help many more adults with disabilities by advertising to 20,000 home within our local community and to raise considerable awareness.
We are a pureley self funded centre, and receive no public or government funding and we are also a registered charity .
We and our service users would be very grateful for any donations made so we can camplete the project and to ensure many more adults with disabilites have somewhere to go where they can feel safe and relaxed and to develop their social skills so they can feel more accepted within the community.
