Short-breaks

Short-breaks and respite for adults with learning disabilities

As promised at our meeting in December last year, we are inviting families, carers and adults with learning disabilities to a follow up meeting.  If you haven’t been before, you are still very welcome to come along.

The meeting is on Wednesday 10 April and will be at the new Cherry Hub, from 5pm to 7pm.

You will have a chance to have a look round the new HUB and hear about some of the activities that are currently happening there.  We are also planning to invite some providers again to come along and present to you all, and we will update you on what has been happening since we last met.

The Cherry Hub is at: 171 St James’s Road, Croydon, CR0 2BY.  If you are driving, there is a free carpark at the rear of the centre, the entrance is via the carpark (at the rear of the building)

Refreshments will be available.

Please email Talk2SocialCare@croydon.gov.uk  or caroline.baxter@croydon.gov.uk  if you have any queries.

We look forward to seeing you, and other families there.
