The Jersey Society for the Disabled run a Social Club that meets every Wednesday (except the 2nd Wednesday of the month) at the St Clements Parish Hall from 3.00 till 4.30 and every Thursday at the Methodist Church in St Martins from 10.30 till 3.30.

We also have a fleet of 4 mini buses and a wheelchair adapted car that are available to lend to members and organisations in exchange for a donation the charity. The Society is a membership organisation; membership is £35 per year.

 

The Wednesday club arranges a variety of activities - bingo, horse racing, music, singing, entertainers guest speakers, Easter and Christmas parties as well as lunch and afternoon tea outings all over the Island that are subsidised by the Society, members are asked to contribute £5, occasionally more depending on the outing.

 

Thursday’s club is an all-day event; they enjoy exercise classes run by physiotherapist Sue Moore that includes Tai Chi for falls prevention, there is a 3 course meal and a range of activities, such as board games and bingo. Thursday’s club cost £5 to attend and members have the option of paying to play bingo for cash prizes as well as purchase raffle tickets for prizes.

 

We are not able to cater for anyone who requires personal care or who requires assistance with medication, though they would be welcome to attend if they can bring their own carer.

 

Transport to and from venues limited, however we may be able to arrange on one of the Society’s 4 minibuses, driven by a team of dedicated volunteer drivers.
