Sport and Play is a week of fun activities and games lasting from 12:30pm until 4:30pm, during which the kids will play sports such as football, rugby, and hockey, as well as perform arts and crafts, such as painting and clay. Children will be provided with 2 breaks during which they will be given a small healthy snack (lunches are not provided).


Advice and Guidance

One of our most successfull programmes aims to help people get into employment, guiding them to work across social spectrums and offering them guidance when dealing with diverse needs and unexpected events, we offer valuable services that meet the needs of the individual.


In turn this gives them, and the community, a positive economic future while also giving them the confidence they need to get into
long-term employment.

Cafe OPOF is a low cost community cafe that is in place for the community to come along and enjoy a hot drink and maybe a bite to eat at an affordable price. Our aim is to involve our community to come together at the cafe, meet new people with the potential to become involved in things they enjoy. Our idea of the cafe was to break down social isolation and to create a safe and fun place for people to come.

The cafe is open from 9:45am – 12:45pm Wednesdays and Fridays.

Come along to Arkleston Community Centre to meet new friends, drink hot drinks and maybe have a bite to eat!!
