Getting out and about is something many of us look forward to. Being able to enjoy a day out, try a new activity or just spend quality time with others can make a real difference to our lives.

AccessAble Activity Group gives people the opportunity to do these things and much more besides. It’s a great place to make friends, learn new skills and have fun.

Our group is aimed at people with sensory disabilities, to take part in activities ranging from social activities to outdoors activities (walking, woodcraft) and sports (e.g. archery, sailing), plus visits to regional attractions and annual social events. The launch event is to be held on the 26th of January between 12pm and 4pm at Meeting Point House, Telford Town Centre where you can find out more about the initiale activities we are planning and to have input into the future activities we may do.

The group is run by a mix of sensory impaired and non-sensory impaired passionate volunteers. This ensures that all activities we co-ordinate for members is suitable for both hearing and sight impairments. In addition to our core aim to get active, we all live in the Telford and surrounding area, so members are a mine of useful information for people with sensory impairments.

Come along and join in the fun, which is made possible thanks to Telford & Wrekin Council’s Development Grant funding.

Hayley Dyson, Co-Chairman said: “This is going to be a fantastic group which will champion the interests of local people with visual and hearing impairment. There will be lots going on covering a variety of interests, designed to encourage all to take part and enjoy, and we are looking forward to bringing the community together.” Tom Kane, Co-Chairman continues, “Our thanks go to all the volunteers who have worked so hard to make it happen, and also to the Council for the funding
