Day opportunities

Getting out and about in the community is an important step in boosting confidence, learning new skills, and socialising. We run two “day opportunities” groups that can help you take these steps and make the most of your community. You’ll be treated as an individual and you can be sure of a warm, friendly welcome.

We have a diverse mix of people attending – people of all ages and from those who need a little support to those with more complex needs. Either way, you’ll find our fully trained staff are focused on helping you stay independent and to have fun.

Stepping Forward South Glos

Stepping Forward South Glos is based at The Batch Community Centre in Warmley and meets every weekday. At this group, you can take part in all sorts of activities like swimming, Zumba, cooking, woodland projects and crafts (you’ll even be able to sell your creations at local craft fairs as well).

Stepping Forward South Glos can also help you find paid employment and voluntary work. It’s done this for people like Matt who now works at a farm café, and Kev who works at a local charity. Others have gone on to find work at libraries and nurseries.

I've never seen him so happy, he has been excellently supported with his depression. His mood and wellbeing have been consistently great since he's joined you.

Stepping Forward Bristol

Stepping Forward Bristol is based at The Park in Knowle. It’s a lively, well-equipped social hub that meets every weekday. Those who come along to this group can be sure of a busy and varied timetable of activities such as visits to local attractions like the theatre, museums and the seaside, bowling, gym sessions and bingo.

The group is equal parts supportive and social, friends are easily made here and you can take part in as many or as few activities as you want. Whether you want to chill out with a cuppa or go on exciting boat trips down the River Avon (weather permitting of course!), there will be something to suit you.
