What we do
The Jaffray Activity Hub and Coffee Shop
Due to Covid-19 the Activity Hub & Coffee Shop is currently closed.
As soon as we are given the go ahead from the Local Authority, we will begin the process of opening our refurbished and rebranded day services in 2021. The Jaffray Centre will be known as the Jaffray Activity Hub.
Our vision is to develop the existing centre and grow it into a new Social and Activity Hub which provides a wonderful community venue. It is a resource that already helps the local community but we wish to make it bigger so we can help more people. The Hub will be for people to share interests, build skills and reduce social isolation and if appropriate support them moving closer to employability or provide volunteering experience. We also wish to provide an environment that supports people and communities who experience disproportionate challenge and difficulty as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
Anyone who needs a little extra help because of their complex health care needs, age, physical disability, sensory impairment, intellectual disability, mental health needs or require palliative care is welcome at the Activity Hub. We particularly wish to show support to our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, all of whom are facing specific challenges during the current COVID- 19 crises.
We aim to make the building and its facilities more inclusive and offer it out as a support facility for those who are especially vulnerable, isolated, or just lonely. We want it to become a centre of the community and plan to open our first social enterprise scheme which will be a community café in the heart of the Hub. The coffee shop project will provide the opportunity for adults with a disability to learn skills which will also help them throughout their life.
We also have a timetable of unique and innovative activities that meet the needs of all, seven days a week. We have a wonderful multi-sensory room, cinema room, art room, training room and spa. We also have a changing suite which will also be advertised on the website Changing Places – set up specifically for people who cannot use standard accessible toilets. This includes people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, as well as older people.
