Leslie Park Service

CroydonMencap_Front_Band

Leslie Park Centre has been running since August 2005 and was set up to support younger aged adults (18-40 years) with learning disabilities to access leisure activities in the community.

58We currently support up to 18 people each day, attending between one and five days per week.

Leslie Park provides a number of different activities to suit individual needs. We are able to access activities locally by using our mini-bus or public transport.

Activities that are currently on offer are:

  • Dance with a dance tutor
  • Drama at the Secombe Theatre
  • Bowling,
  • Boccia
  • Cycling
  • Art and craft
  • Games
  • Keep fit
  • Cookery skills
  • Computer skills
  • Pamper sessions
  • Tennis at Shirley Tennis Club

We visit places of interest that are suggested by our members and attend joint activities and community days with Sutton Mencap. We have formed lasting friendships along the way.

We also focus on everyday living skills such as travel training, numeracy and literacy where a need is identified. For example, we ran a dental hygiene programme, and have also worked in partnership with the Metropolitan Police in designing a Personal Safety programme looking at issues of travel and “stranger danger”.
