Papworth Trust’s social club in Ipswich is for young adults with additional needs. We run a range of activities including music, arts and crafts, cookery, sports and trips to local places of interest in the town centre.
We would like volunteers to support our Ipswich social club and help to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable time, in a safe environment. Your assistance may enable people to try new activities that are not otherwise accessible to them.
The clubs meets every Monday 18:30-20:30 at Papworth Trust Centre, 42-54 Foundation Street, Ipswich, IP4 1BN.
Most of our participants are in their mid 20s, our youngest participants are 14/15 and our oldest in their early 30s.
