Dancing to Music and Happy & Health Club

CLASP is an exciting, interactive and supportive charity, supporting adults with learning disabilities in the Wokingham Borough and surrounding areas. We offer a range of services which include having lots of fun but also working hard to make a positive difference to our community.

Our mission is: “To develop independence through self-advocacy for adults living with a learning disability”.  We deliver this through workshops and training, providing resources and signposting, and peer support.  We’re a small team of staff, volunteers and trustees and are a well-established part of the learning disability community.

CLASP believes that everyone should be valued and treated equally.  Staff and self-advocates work together to raise awareness of learning disabilities and important issues affecting the local learning disability community.  We empower people with learning disabilities to have the same opportunities and choices as everyone else.  Self-advocates are involved in all areas of the charity’s delivery and our Board of Trustees and staff team includes people with learning disabilities.

CLASP do a variety of activities to keep our mind and body healthy.

The second Tuesday of each month we have Dancing to Music with Aby from Wokingham Borough Sports & Leisure.  These sessions can be done at your own pace and ability.  We dance to great music and all feel so much happier and healthier when we finish.  The sessions are free to join, and are from 10am to 11am at the Bradbury Centre in Wokingham Town Centre.

We also have our Happy & Healthy Club which runs on the last Wednesday of a month. We rotate our activities from Healthy Eating to Seated Pilates and then Mindfulness.  So each month you will do one of these things all designed to fit all abilities and to help us all with minds and bodies.

We were lucky to get a grants from Get Berkshire Active and Wokingham Healthwatch to ensure these meetings are free
