How we help

All our services are open to people who become members of Uniting Friends.

-Our Daytime Services

We run a daytime service called Out There! Daytime. It offers an enormous range of activities that promotes personal development and independence. These include basic skills learning, supported college, a huge choice of sports, arts and crafts, dance and horticultural activities.

All activities are supported by our team of friendly, qualified and experienced staff.

-Our Evening and Weekend Services

Our evening and weekend service is called Out There! Evenings and Weekends. There is a comprehensive programme of activities arranged each month both locally and across London, designed and chosen by our members themselves. For example, we offer theatre trips, sporting activities, meals out, cinema visits and much more!

There are weekly drop-in sessions which includes social time in a local pub, as well as Change 4 Life health activities to get our members involved in things such as cookery, dance and yoga.

As part of the same service, we also run Network Groups. This is popular with members who are looking for closer friendships or those looking to do their 'own thing' with regard to activities. Together with a support worker, they plan their own social calendar with three or four friends.

-Holidays

We offer various breaks in the UK and abroad throughout the year. Read more here
