Description

DBPSS has a range of activity groups designed to offer new challenges and opportunities to clients of all ages whilst providing support in a 'safe' environment. Group helpers are required to help with planning, organisation, supervision, guiding and providing refreshments. (In some cases) our groups are often involved in fund raising for their own activities. Tea & Chat with monthly tea dance, Reminiscence group, Bingo, Craft Group. We also need people with skills to start new groups which would be of interest to our clients. An interest in playing musical instruments or encouraging clients to sing at Tea and Chat would be welcome.
