Our weekly and regular activities


Over 18s

People with learning disabilities can have difficulty making and keeping friends. This can be because of the nature of their learning disability but is often also because of the lack of opportunity. At DADLG we aim to provide as varied a social programme as possible in a supportive environment.

We know that young people aged 18 and over enjoy a variety of social events with people in their own age group. Theatre and cinema trips, visits to restaurants and dog tracks or even just a quiet drink in the pub – all provide a great opportunity to meet up with friends and have a good time. If you are 18 years old or older and have some ideas about what you would like to do, let us know and we’ll try to organise it.
